The Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE) will be held at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, CO from July 31 through August 4, 2016. This is an excellent professional development opportunity for high school and college chemistry instructors. You still have time to submit an abstract to present. Presentations are generally 20 minutes in length.
Are you using the Modeling Instruction? Do you have materials or tips for AP chemistry teachers? Have you been using inquiry strategies? You probably have something to share with the larger community.
This is just a short list of some of the symposium topics to submit your abstract(s) to:
- George Hague Memorial AP Chem Symposium
- Equilibrium and acids/bases: How are these taught in a high school classroom?
- Introducing Organic Chemistry in High School
- Models and Modeling in Introductory Chemistry
- PrOGeCTeS: Projects in the Chemistry Classroom
- Putting the Framework into Practice: Incorporating and Evaluating Scientific Practices and Crosscutting Concepts in Chemistry
- Student-centered Learning with a Focus on Improving Process Skills in the Classroom and Laboratory
- Symposium on AP Chemistry
- Using Chemistry Education Research to Inform Teaching Strategies and the Design of Instructional Materials
If you are considering submitting, don’t delay! Sit down now and put together an abstract. Be sure to read the abstract submission rules. The deadline for abstract submissions is February 28th. You need to create a login on the BCCE 2016 site before you can submit. Also check out all the things to do, where to stay and other info about the conference on the BCCE 2016 home page. I hope to see you there!
