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.
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.
On April 22, 2017, people all over the world will be coming together to stand up for science. The March for Science is a part of a global movement by scientists, science-enthusiasts, and evidence-based policy makers to celebrate the integral role science plays in all our lives. The March will serve to further several goals, I encourage you to read about them.
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.
This webinar will introduce the Claim, Evidence, Reasoning (CER) Framework, implementation strategies, and how it helps create a classroom culture that more accurately reflects the ways progress in scientific knowledge and communication take place in the real world. Free webinar for all AMTA members!
This webinar will discuss how to approach teaching stoichiometry problems using a table set-up (commonly referred to as Before, Change, After tables) to make the process visually appealing and more intuitive for students. The process emphasizes proportional reasoning and explicitly connects the calculations to the particulate nature of matter.
A unique professional development opportunity for STEM teachers from Indiana and Alabama.
The NGSS calls for the use of the engineering design process in science classrooms K12. Let’s discuss what this means for the modeling classroom. Bring your ideas about how and when to integrate the engineering design process and engineering projects into your classroom. Free Webinar for all AMTA members!
Register now to attend the AACT webinar on January 25 at 7:00 EST. This webinar will introduce demonstrations you can use when they first learn the material, or as they prepare for the AP test. You'll be provided with demonstration questions that can be scaled up or down depending on the level of chemistry that you teach.
