Improve chemistry content on Wikipedia this fall in one of your courses!

Digital literacy is no longer a nice-to-have for today's students. It's a critical skill as students engage with today's media landscape, and its the responsibility of educators to ensure that students are able to accurately and responsibly consume as well as produce information. whether you're teaching chemistry or media studies, digital literacy is a core skill. There are few assignments that tackle digital literacy as well as the Wikipedia assignment!

Abstract submissions have been extended until July 11th! Please consider joining us! Hello, We are excited to invite you to join us at the 2022 Southeastern Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society (SERMACS)! It will take place from October 19th to October 22nd in beautiful and sunny San Juan, Puerto Rico. The program includes multiple symposia, workshops, and plenary lectures in all fields of chemistry. In the area of Chemical Education, we have the following symposia:

Northeast Regional ACS Meeting Call for Papers

Greetings everyone,

A full day session entitled Innovations in Chemistry Education will be a part of the NERM 2022 meeting this year held in Rochester, NY on October 2-5,2022.

Postdoc in STEM Education - Instructional Change Teams

We are advertising a postdoctoral-level research position associated with the NSF-IUSE award Modeling Instructional Change Teams (NSF #1914857, Lead PI Alice Olmstead; NSF #1914880, PI Andrea Beach, co-PI Charles Henderson, https://instructionalchangeteams.weebly.com/). This project aims to develop and share research-based tools and guidance to change leaders who aim to support teams working to improve undergraduate STEM courses nationally.

Empower students by improving chemistry related content on Wikipedia this Fall!

Since 2010, Wiki Education has been empowering students to have a lasting impact on today's knowledge landscape by helping them to contribute their expertise to Wikipedia. In that time, we've supported over 100,000 students who have thus far added over 80 million words to Wikipedia. Wiki Education is now signing classes up for the Fall 2022 term, and we hope you'll join us in this critical work.

Two Postdoctoral Research Positions at San Diego State University

The Komperda group in the Chemistry & Biochemistry Department at San Diego State University is hiring two postdoctoral researchers. Both positions are for projects where a strong quantitative background will be beneficial (details below). These positions are open to candidates both trained in CER and candidates in other fields with relevant training, so please share widely within your networks. Start dates can be as soon as this July and review of applications begins immediately.

Suggested Journals for Publication

Hope this message finds everyone well. A local high school chemistry teacher reached out to me about a project that she did with her AP Chemistry students during Spring, 2021. The chemistry involved in the project was pretty simple and there were a few errors in the research design. Nonetheless, the activity of involving an entire class of about 10-15 students in the identification of a research problem and its implementation is, at least in my opinion, really worth reporting.
