Associate Professor of Chemistry Scott Williams and the other members of the Leadership Council of IONiC (The Interactive Online Network of Inorganic Chemists) have been awarded a National Science Foundation of $437,962 over four years entitled, “IONiC: Transforming Education Through Collaborative Development of Materials at the Frontiers of Inorganic Chemistry”. IONiC maintains a website, VIPEr (the Virtual Inorganic Pedagogical Electronic Resource, www.ionicviper.org) where inorganic faculty share teaching materials, expertise, and curricular innovations, and also runs annual symposia on undergraduate research in inorganic chemistry at the American Chemical Society National Meetings in partnership with the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry. This new grant will support these initiatives and support annual “Back to Grad School” workshops that bring together teachers of inorganic chemistry from a variety of institutions with researchers on the cutting edge of research to create teaching materials based on recent discoveries in the field. Adam Johnson of Harvey Mudd College is also a member of the Leadership Council of IONiC.
