A strategy for educational policy


The first 2-day meeting of the ad hoc IUPAC Education Strategy Development Committee (ESDC) was held at the Royal Institution in London on 20-21 Feb 2000. Appointed after the 1999 General Assembly as a result of the Vice President's Critical Assessment, this Committee was asked to examine the educational role of IUPAC. Particular attention will be paid to the role of the current Committee on Teaching of Chemistry (CTC). The ESDC will consider if the CTC needs to broaden its horizons, to engage in a wider range of activities, and to consider its direction afresh. In an attempt to seek strategic ideas and gather the views of stakeholders, the Committee is encouraging all those interested to submit their ideas by writing to the Committee Chairman, Prof. Atkins <peter.atkins@lincoln.ox.ac.uk>.
