Over the past five years, distance and online education have played an increasingly important role in the higher education landscape. As ACS prepares to revise its Guidelines for Chemistry in Two-Year College Programs, the impact of distance learning on two-year colleges has to be addressed in order for the Guidelines to remain current with the needs of the community. In this interactive presentation, members of the SOCED Task Force on the Revision of the Guidelines will present what is known about the impact of distance education on the two-year college chemistry community and solicit input from the audience on what ACS can do to support chemistry educators. Come share your successes, challenges, and insights on distance education.
