Molecular modeling is now well established as a research tool across the chemical sciences. At least part of its appeal as a research tool is the integration of computational methods with visualization tools. These very qualities also make molecular modeling eminently well suited as an adjunct to traditional methods for teaching chemical concepts.
Our goal in hosting this workshop was to bring together chemical educators from across Alberta to discuss the applications of molecular modeling in undergraduate education which they have either tried or with which they hope to experiment.
