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.
