ALOC Symposium at the ACS 2019 Orlando

A wide selections of talks related to teaching organic chemistry classes were presented at the Active Learning in Organic Chemistry symposium at the Spring 2019 American Chemical Society meeting. The symposium was organizerd by two member of the leadership board, Alexey Leontyev (NDSU) and Jennifer Muzyka (Centre College). All symposium presented were given new purple OrganicERs t-shirts as a token of appreciation for their efforts. A list of talks and presenters are included in the table below.
