BCCE 2020: Evidence-Based Instructional Practices: Flipped Classrooms and Inquiry-Based Teaching Strategies

We really encourage all two-year college educators to speak at the 2020 BCCE about what they are doing that is working for their students. There are multiple types and communities of chemistry educators. Some of us are excellent teachers, educational researchers, or providers of public outreach. Each of us brings value to our understanding of how chemistry is taught and learned, and we can ALL learn from each other. Click on the title for more information on how to submit an abstract for this symposium.

#Chemcation2019

What is #chemcation2019? Though there is some debate on the pronunciation, it’s s a summer of a chemistry vacation. I find the most rejuvenating, invigorating, and inspiring part of my summer is spending time with my fellow chemistry educators.
