The IUCr Crystallographic Teaching Commission is one of several International Union of Crystallography Commissions and is responsible for supporting activities relating to teaching crystallography. It was established at the Third General Assembly this Commission with the object of exchanging information on an international scale on the subject of teaching crystallography, of promoting publication of articles on teaching, and of arranging discussions.

Teaching Pamphlets

The Teaching Pamphlets are the result of a long term aim of the Commission on Crystallographic Teaching to produce a large collection of short statements each dealing with a specific topic at a specific level. The emphasis is on a particular teaching approach. It is not the function of the Commission to decide on the "best" approach but to make all available so that teachers can make their own selection.
