The overarching theme of the 2017 conference is “Beyond Diversity: Inclusiveness in Chemistry Education”. Presentations are invited from everyone in the teaching community - the following are some ideas for potential topics:
- active teaching strategies in the classroom and laboratory
- providing supportive learning environments
- public outreach initiatives
- enterprises bringing disparate groups together (e.g. connecting high school teachers with college instructors)
In addition to the academic program, there will be social activities such as the opening reception, tours, the conference banquet and the much anticipated fun run, which will take in the beautiful U of T scenery. More details will be available in January 2017.
Registration for the conference will open early next year (collegechemistry.ca/conferences/17conf/conf2017.html), with abstract submission beginning shortly afterwards.
