Closing the divide between ‘green’ and ‘organic’ chemistry

Over the summer, our group has been working on a new project: developing ‘plug-and-play’ organic chemistry modules that connect the classic topics (e.g., Michael additions) with green and sustainable chemistry.

This project will create an Open Educational Resource (OER) that addresses both organic chemistry and green chemistry learning outcomes. We’re making the content so that educators can easily integrate the modules into any organic chemistry curriculum.

Helping lead this project is Dr. Alaina Boyd (left), our PDF-turned-collaborator and green chemistry expert. We’re also working with experts across Canadian institutions – Dr. Le (YorkU), Dr. Dicks (UofT), and Dr. Jessop (Queen’s).

This project is funded by eCampusOntario‘s Virtual Learning Strategy.
