With the sudden emergence of physical distancing requirements due to COVID-19, the already condensed and fast-paced summer 2020 courses became even more challenging. The necessity of remote teaching required instructors to develop at-home laboratories & assessments and extensive on-line content while addressing the educational and technological needs of students around the world.

The Whine & Wine, organized by the CIC Chemical Education Division, provides an opportunity for active instructors to meet, greet, brag, complain, and hydrate. Whether you are a current summer chemistry instructor, preparing to teach in the fall, or looking to unwind with colleagues, join us on July 30th at 5:30 pm EDT

More event dates to follow!
