BCCE 2018 and The New Year

If you have never attended a BCCE, I offer some reasons to change that this summer. The conference will be in Notre Dame this summer. Please vote for the topic that you would like me to develop my presentation about.

Get Your Learn On

When I first started teaching I was very fortunate that a local teacher invited me to a high school chemistry teachers meeting. I was really young and really motivated to be a better teacher. I registered immediately and went to an all day event. I think I learned more that day than I did in all of my teacher training.

Who inspires you? Do you have a “chem teaching rockstar” whose work fires you up as you enter another school year? Is there an author whose work you consistently turn to for his or her insights into the chemistry classroom? Or maybe memories of a past teacher of yours?

ChemEd X Professional Learning Community

We are happy that you have chosen to attend our ChemEd X Professional Learning Community Workshop! Our hope is that you will leave with a better understanding of our mission for ChemEd X and you will be able to make better use of the site. If contributing content for publication is one of your goals, you will have a better understanding of that process.

Especially JCE: May 2016

I have no idea what the title is of the first Journal of Chemical Education article that I want to highlight this month. That’s because you haven’t written it yet.

BCCE abstracts due February 28, 2016

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.
