Chemistry Education Research (CER) — A growing discipline in Canada!

Chemistry Education Research (CER) is a type of Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) that studies students' learning, challenges, barriers, interventions, and supports. When this type of research informs practice, the effect on student learning and success if pronounced. There is a growing number of Chemistry Education Researchers in Canada, including opportunities for graduate and post graduate studies!

Connecting the Canadian Chemistry Education Research Community to Explore New Ways of Learning in Higher Education

 

Event Description

Last year, the inaugural Connecting the Canadian Chemistry Education Research Community (C3ERC) event was held at the 2017 CSC Conference in Toronto. This event brought together 15 chemistry education researchers from across the country to exchange research knowledge and build research capacity, build reciprocal relationships, connect the chemistry education research (CER) community, and ultimately shape the future of CER in Canada, for the benefit of students. Owing to the success of last year’s event, we are planning to host this event again this year at the CSC Conference in Edmonton. This full-day event is scheduled for Saturday, May 26. We are asking for your help to share this information with Chemistry Education Researchers in your Department. Please direct interested individuals (including undergraduate/graduate students and postdocs) to the registration form. Please register by April 4. Even if you can’t attend but wish to (continue to) be part of this community, we welcome your suggestions on this form and through other modes of communication.
