This module will cover various readings and videos related to Strategic Planning and Strategic Management. You will explore in detail how leadership and strategic management and planning will make or break any business. We will explore how critical strategic planning and management are to nonprofits. You will see that there are challenges to creating a plan, especially depending on the size and the age of the nonprofit. You and your team will be creating a SWOT analysis for the Class NPO as well as for your Service Learning partners. Be sure to look for tips and best practices other NPOs offer. Clear understanding of conducting a strategic analysis will improve the quality of your midterm project proposals as well as your third reflection paper and final presentation centered around your Service Learning project.Required Reading

Context: General Chemistry I (Undergraduate)
This module is for General Chemistry I which is the first chemistry course taken by undergraduate chemistry and biology majors. It has been used with classes ranging in size from 35 to 40. This is the second TBL module in the course, and it typically takes three 90 minute periods to complete. Topics include: the periodic table, elements, ions, isotopes, molar mass and moles.
Students are given the following reading guide for a chapter in their textbook. This module was used with Chemistry: A Molecular Approach by Nivaldo Tro (Tro, Nivaldo J. Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, 3rd ed.; Prentice Hall: Upper Saddle River, NJ, 2013.), but it could be adapted for any General Chemistry text. In the text by Tro, students read sections 2.5-2.9 which is about 20 pages. All reading assignments are posted at the beginning of the semester, and students have at least two days to complete the reading.

There is still time to register for the first in a series of free webinars sponsored by the Team-Based Learning Collaborative, focusing on generating research ideas with an aim at getting that scholarly work published. Many who are teaching-focused would like to (or need to) publish papers, but may not have access to research data in a particular discipline. This TBLC Research and Scholarship webinar is the first in a series that features a wide range of research that members have published.
Title: Getting Research Ideas With the Aim of Publication
Presenter: Dr. Peter Balan, OAM
Time: Tuesday, April 23 at 12 PM ESTRegistration link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8190296598264358668 We hope you enjoy the first of what will surely be a successful series of webinars all focused on helping you do your best research and scholarship.
