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.
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.
Session #6 of our ChemEd X Conference: Chemistry Instruction for the Next Generation highlights the Journal of Chemical Education article, The Dynamic Density Bottle: A Make-and-Take, Guided Inquiry Activity on Density.
Session #5 of the ChemEd X Conference, Chemistry Instruction for the Next Generation, highlights the Journal of Chemical Education article, Nature or Naughty: Bringing “Deflategate” to the High School Chemistry Classroom.
The 4th session of the ChemEd X Conference: Chemistry Instruction for the Next Generation highlights the JCE Collaborative Professional Development in Chemistry Education Research: Bridging the Gap between Research and Practice.
This is the third Journal of Chemical Education article that we are highlighting in our Chemistry Instruction for the Next Generation conference. The session will be open for conversation May 18 - 20.
Analyzing the Role of Science Practices in ACS Exam Items was published in the January 2017 issue of the Journal of Chemical Education. Tom Holme, a former ACS Exams Institute Director, authored the article along with Jessica Reed and Alexandra Brandriet.
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.
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.
CHEM Ed 2017 will be in Brookings, South Dakota on the campus of South Dakota State University from July 23 through 27. Currently the conference program directors are accepting abstract submissions through February 28th.
