P265: Reshaping chemistry curriculum at State Fair Community College: A case study of the use of the ACS Guidelines for Chemistry in Two-Year College Programs

Jack Lee Hayes (State Fair Community College, USA)

Reshaping a curriculum rarely easy, but there are resources that can help. This presentation will review how the ACS Guidelines for Chemistry in Two-Year College Programs and other resources were used to integrate more inquiry-based techniques, add academic journals and scientific databases to the college library’s collection, develop students’ skills in laboratory safety and the use of chemical literature, influence facility decisions, and set enrollment limits.

This case study is one of 12 in the new publication Use of the ACS Guidelines for Chemistry in Two-Year College Programs: A Collection of Case Studies. Background on the development of the collection, as well as copies, will be provided.
