Instructors and Researchers: Advancing Graduate Education in Chemistry
Scholarly work has only rarely focused on the experiences of students in chemistry graduate programs. There is emerging interest in the training of graduate students in their role as teaching assistants, as well as their identity development, development of scientific skills and expertise, and the effect of teaching on graduate learning. This symposium invites submissions that explore and analyze the graduate education experience from any of these multiple perspectives. In addition, this symposium welcomes submissions on graduate course design, program/policy development, pedagogical training, and any other topic that directly relates to the graduate education experience in the chemical sciences.
