Organization of the Chemistry Clearing House

The Committee on Chemistry Education (CCE) has approved a pilot project to organize a Chemistry Clearing House at the Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology for the translation, publication, and dissemination of IUPAC-sourced materials and ideas in chemical education in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

Goals of the clearinghouse are to improve the professional skills of teachers in high schools, colleges, and polytechnic schools and to eliminate the present gap between fundamental science and curricula in the teaching of chemistry. New educational technologies and methods as well as foreign scientific magazines such as Chemistry Review and Chemistry International are not available to teachers, even in high schools, in Russia and CIS. In order to provide teachers with such information, it will be necessary to involve an intermediary organization in Moscow for the dissemination of IUPAC-sourced educational materials and practices approved by CCE. The Chemistry Clearing House could become such an organization. It would receive educational materials and recommendations from the National Representative in CCE and then would translate, publish, and disseminate them to educational institutions in Russia and CIS via mail, e-mail, the Internet, TV programs, advertisements in Russian newspapers and magazines, and at innovative workshops. The necessary methodological literature would also need to be translated into Russian, prepared, and published.

Another function that could fall under the aegis of this Chemistry Clearing House would be organizing summer programs for young teachers and other audiences regarding these problems of interest to IUPAC. The House of Sciences of Russian Academy of Sciences could be one of the locations for regular workshops.
