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

In 2017, 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.

The 2018 Connecting the Canadian Chemistry Education Research Community (C3ERC) event was held just before the CSC in Edmonton, Alberta and brought together students and even more researchers, including from the US. As Chemistry Education Research Canada, we will be welcoming new members from anywhere in the world, and particularly welcome students who are interested in CER. Stay tuned!
