This symposium will provide a forum for discussing the current state of the general chemistry labs at universities in the Big 10 Conference. Topics of discussion, while aimed at large, research-oriented chemistry departments, will be relevant to most any other size chemistry department. This symposium invites presentations that outline any innovative approach to teaching general chemistry labs in a high-volume student setting, whether successful or not. The organizers believe sharing both successes and failures will stimulate discussion and facilitate progress for all involved.
