updated CER grad programs website

Good morning to all,

Just a brief note that I have had to rebuild my website (long story).

More relevant to the CER listserv is that I’ve also rebuilt the google map for CER grad programs in the U.S. While I have put a redirect in place for my old website, you may wish to update any direct links you have to the CER grad program map with this new URL:


Thank you.

Research in Labs Survey

We are seeking faculty, staff, and graduate students to participate in an online survey linked below on the current status of educational experiences in undergraduate biology laboratory courses. The ultimate goal is to help understand and inform the education community about instructors’ perspectives on undergraduate laboratory education and research. Instructors’ perspectives are critical to students’ access to authentic research and educational experiences and consequently to student outcomes. Instructors and lab managers at all levels of experience are welcome to participate.


We would like to invite you the next ACS-CHED-CER Webinar on "Disrupting Higher Education" with Marilyne Stains (CER), Tessa Andrews (BER), and Noah Finkelstein (PER). The Webinar will take place on Wednesday February 24 at 3:30 PM (Pacific Time) via Zoom (https://arizona.zoom.us/j/88349131067).

BCCE 2022 Interest Survey

Hello ChemEd Colleagues,


I don’t know about you, but 11 months of virtual conferences, Zoom classes, and social isolation is wearing thin. But hopefully with the ongoing vaccine rollout, the light at the end of the tunnel is coming closer.


As bright spot to look forward to, we are in the early planning phase of the 2022 Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE) to be held on July 31-August 4th at Purdue University.
