Chemistry 3250 Contemporary Chemistry Spring 2012 Instructor: Marc R. Roussel Office: E862 Phone: 403-329-2326 Email: [email protected] Course web site: http://people.uleth.ca/ ~ roussel/C3250 1 Introduction 1.1 Course purpose and objectives The purpose of this course is to develop professional skills for chemists. At the conclusion of this course, you should be able to do all of the following: Identify resources in the chemical literature efficiently. Write technical summaries of information received orally or in print. Make a technical presentation. Engage with ethical issues arising during professional practice in chemistry. Time permitting, it may be possible to discuss additional aspects of professional practice. Don’t hesitate to mention topics you would like to have covered. 1.2 Email Important information will frequently be communicated to the class via email. It is your responsibility to keep an eye on your email during the term. This includes making sure that you do not exceed your email quota. You can check your email account status at https://www.uleth.ca/webtools/account_tools/ acctstatus . 1.3 Office hours I operate on an open-door basis: If I’m in, you are welcome to stop in to ask questions. I am also happy to meet students by appointment. 2 General expectations I have every confidence that you will comport yourself according to the highest ethical standards. The following notes are intended to avoid misunderstandings, and should be taken in this spirit. As usual, you are expected to conform to all Calendar policies regarding student work, including the Calendar policy regarding plagiarism [2011–12 Calendar, Part 4, section 5(a)]. All written work submitted in this course is expected to be your own work, written in your own words. This doesn’t mean that you can’t discuss assignments with classmates, but the moment you use words they wrote (which can happen if you, e.g., share electronic files) without quoting them properly, you are crossing a line and will be subject to the very serious sanctions for plagiarism outlined in the Calendar. Since it is often difficult to tell who copied from whom, letting another student access electronic files containing your work, or providing them with a 1

printout of your work, is a hazardous practice. Don’t put yourself in the position of having to explain why your assignment and someone else’s look suspiciously similar. By all means share your ideas generously, but keep your files to yourself. Parts of this course will involve discussion. You are expected to engage in these discussions, and even at times to debate vigorously, but you must at all times be respectful of others. The key to debating in a professional and respectful manner is to focus at all times on the issues being discussed and to keep personal comments out of the debate. I will do my best to help you learn the difference should an occasion arise in which someone inadvertently lapses into ad hominem attacks or other forms of unacceptable discourse. It will be your responsibility to strive to maintain a respectful and professional tone during your discussions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
