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.
Upcoming PD from Illinois Science and Math: This self-paced online professional development opportunity features two inquiry-based chemistry labs that use familiar and easy to find materials, making these activities suitable for in-person or remote learning.
The Center for Teaching and Learning at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy now offers a variety of online professional development opportunities. Among the current selection, there is a chemistry offering titled Gamifying Chemistry.
Celebrate National Chemistry Week 2020 October 18–24, 2020 with the theme, "Sticking with Chemistry."
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.)
The 2020-2021 cohort has been cancelled due to COVID 19 pandemic. If you are interested in participating in a future cohort in SY 2021 please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
