Transcript of "Slide 1 - LeTourneau University - Longview, TX"

  1. 1. Discipline-specific Collaborative Scholarship in Organic Chemistry within CCCU schools Title III Grant 07/08 Michael Korn Heavenly Father....thank you for working in our midst. Bless the body of Christ at CCCU and help us to make you famous!
  2. 2. Overall GoalOverall Goal • To make God famous! • To bring dedicated Christians who are organic chemists together to work corporately for something bigger than themselves. • To show the ‘world’ that Christians can be very good scholars => reclaim education for Christ. • To further the kingdom of God.
  3. 3. MeansMeans • To move away from isolation • To share expertise • To share research equipment • To exchange best teaching practices (lecture and lab) • To identify common project(s)
  4. 4. ProcedureProcedure • All CCCU schools were searched via the internet for ‘chemistry’ programs, and then for professors that teach organic chemistry. • Results: – 110 CCCU schools searched – 87 have chemistry program – 90+ professors teach organic chemistry
  5. 5. ProcedureProcedure • All 90+ professors were contacted by e-mail and invited to join the collaborative effort. • Results: – 12 (14) professors responded (very positively!) – Equals about 13% (15%) response rate – 40% female /60% male (cc.f.20/80 of the 93 profs) – representing 11 CCCU schools

  15. 15. Future stepsFuture steps • Design/identify a special course offered/taught at one university with students enrolling from all other universities. • Collect original & unique experiments for the organic lab and publish jointly. • Exchange e-mails when tackling an OC problem. • Find/engage in a joint research project. – E.g. One PI, many co-PIs – Major research task, e.g. malaria (?) – Send students along to do summer research
