Events at ChemEd X are professional development opportunities for chemical educators.
Events include webinars, workshops, conferences, and meetings of interest to chemical educators. Currently, this is placeholder for event listings.
ScIC2 "Science is Cool" is a FREE Virtual unconference that will be offered Thursday May 21, 2020! (Professional Development credit is available for purchase through Fresno Pacific University.)
If you are an experienced (3+ years) middle school or high school teacher of chemistry in the US in the Central or Eastern time zone, you are invited you to apply to participate in the ACCT professional development program to examine how formative assessment can foster students’ chemical thinking. Due to the changes in schooling caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACCT project is changing its plan for professional development for 2020-2021 school year. To respect the time that teachers will need to adjust with their students in the new school year, we will offer the ACCT professional development program in a synchronous interactive and remote (via Zoom) shorter format of a half-year, beginning in January 2021.
Course Based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) are being developed and implemented at university and college campuses across the nation in STEM disciplines. Turning your course/labs into research based can be a daunting task when you don't know where/when to start. STEM faculty from Arizona State Unversity are hosting a free workshop at the end of May to disseminate their findings on their CURE programs.
During the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, celebrate CCEW 2020 April 19-25 with the theme, “Protecting Our Planet through Chemistry.” You will find resources and ideas to celebrate as an individual, as part of your own group or by working with other groups in your area.
AP Chemistry instructors Paul Price and Michael Farabaugh will share their experience in a 90-minute webinar, Helping Students Show What They Know – An AP Chemistry Review, on Wednesday, March 4th, 2020. They will share how they help students "show what they know" in preparation for the exam in May.
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.
We are hoping to have a varied program with multiple options for those who are interested in presenting. From a 10 minute quick idea that worked well in the classroom to 40 minutes of how you reformed a class, there will be something for everyone.
The conference focus is on building community. If you have an example of how you were able to bring people together please consider presenting and sharing your work. Our ultimate goal is that everyone leaves the conference feeling they are part of a bigger community of Chemistry Educators and ready to build community in the classroom and out.
The ACS Division of Chemical Education is co-sponsoring an ACS webinar on Jan 30, 2020 called The Secret Lives of Snowflakes: Peculiarities in the Molecular Dynamics of Ice Crystal Growth. The Webinar is FREE and open to all that are interested.
The 26th Biennial Conference on Chemical Education, BCCE 2020, will be held on the campus of Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon USA July 18-23, 2020. We invite our chemistry education and science education colleagues at the pre-college level (K-12) and college level to submit abstracts of their work for presentations in the symposia sessions, the general papers sessions, or the poster sessions.
ACS is offering an opportunity for you to be able to collaborate with local academia and learn from chemists about the challenges, surprises and achievements of chemical synthesis in the pharmaceutical industry.
