Conference

Now is the Time to Plan for BCCE 2018

The Biennial Conference on Chemical Education is one of the best professional development opportunities available for chemistry teachers. The 2018 conference will be held at Notre Dame in South Bend, IN, July 29 - August 3. The ACS Division of Chemical Education sponsors this national meeting. There is excellent programming available for middle school science teachers, high school chemistry teachers, graduate students and college faculty. You do not have to be a member of ACS or the Division of Chemical Education to attend and/or present. 

Announcing a Unique Virtual Conference: Tools for Integrating Green Chemistry in Your Classroom

This conference has concluded. If you registered for the conference, you can still access the materials, but the conversation has closed.

Tools for Integrating Green Chemistry in Your Classroom features a hybrid of published Journal of Chemical Education articles, Beyond Benign lesson plans and additional supporting resources. Join us to gain a deeper understanding of how to integrate green chemistry principles and practices into your classrooms, by investigating novel technologies, exploring green chemistry alternatives to traditional experiments, and evaluating a fresh perspective on chemical modeling. Our goal is to spark interactive dialogue related to increasing the adoption of green chemistry principles and practices throughout the K-20 chemistry education spectrum.

Chemistry Instruction for the Next Generation: Session #1

Evidence for the Effectiveness of Inquiry-Based, Particulate-Level Instruction on Conceptions of the Particulate Nature of Matter was published in the February 2012 issue of the Journal of Chemical Education. The authors, Chad Bridle and Ellen Yezierski, will lead off the ChemEd X Conference: Chemistry Instruction for the Next Generation with the first session. 

Announcing a Unique Virtual Conference: Chemistry Instruction for the Next Generation

This conference is now closed.

Registration is now open for the inaugural Chemical Education Xchange Conference with a theme of Chemistry Instruction for the Next Generation. Recent chemical education research has informed the expectations of the Next Generation Science Standards and the revised AP chemistry curriculum along with changing expectations at the postsecondary level. The Journal of Chemical Education is sponsoring the virtual conference to support the chemistry education community by bringing together chemistry education researchers and chemistry educators at the secondary and postsecondary level to address the implications of increasing the use of student-centered strategies.
