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.

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.
