Call for Authors of ACS eBook

The Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE 2020) was cancelled this July; however, there is interest in an ACS eBook about Effective Practices in Teaching Chemistry Online. We would like others to consider contributing a short chapter for the eBook. First drafts are not due until February 15 and chapters are written as a short paper (topics could include a model for assessing engagement in online chemistry, a model for engaging students, what worked/didn't work, tools used in teaching chemistry online, online labs, and much more).
