BCCE Abstracts : Digital Laboratory Platforms: Pragmatic Benefits and Drawbacks

Dear Colleagues,

I want to invite those working with digital laboratory platforms to submit an abstract for the BCCE 2020 symposium Digital Laboratory Platforms: Pragmatic Benefits and Drawbacks. Abstracts must be submitted by February 24th, 2020 (https://bcce2020.org/call-for-abstracts/). Conference is at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR on July 18th to July 23rd.

Symposium Summary:

Opening: Post-doctoral researcher in the science of learning

Nicole Ladue at Northern Illinois University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Science of Learning The Visualization & Geoscience Education Research Lab at NIU seeks a post-doctoral researcher to support a NSF-funded project investigating students' conceptual understanding of geoscience processes (NSF #1835950.) This mixed-mixed methods study investigates aspects of students' spatial thinking and understanding associated with surface processes (i.e. weathering, erosion, and deposition) and hydrologic processes (i.e. groundwater and river systems).

BCCE Abstracts: Discourse Frameworks in Active Learning Chemistry Classrooms

ACS Bridge Travel Awards for Graduate Students

Are you presenting at the ACS Spring National Meeting? For the 2020 application cycle only, the ACS Bridge Project is offering travel funds to graduate students presenting at the ACS National Meeting. The student award will defray travel and/or registration costs to the Spring National Meeting and Exposition. Each award will be for up to $2,500 of eligible expenses. The aim of this travel award is to advance the career and professional development of URM chemical science graduate students by helping to support the students' effort in presenting at the ACS National Meeting.

BCCE Symposium: Trends in GOB Chemistry – Where are we now?

 

Dear GOB Colleagues:

Together with my colleagues Laura Frost, (Florida Gulf Coast University), Kalyn Owen (N. Seattle College), Ann Murkowski (N. Seattle College), and Lafayette Eaton (St John Fisher College) we are teaming up this summer to organize a GOB symposium for the 2020 BCCE.

CHIRAL project interview invitation

Dear all,

We would like to invite you to participate in an NSF (#1915424/#1914996/#1915343) funded CHemistry Instrument Review and Assessment Library (CHIRAL) project that will develop an assessment library that contains inventories commonly used in chemistry education research and the evidence that supports the validity and reliability of these instruments. Your participation will provide valuable insights for developing the desired features of CHIRAL website that will be beneficial to the chemistry education community.

ACS DivChed-CER Webinar in March

The ACS DivCHED-CER webinar planned for this coming March will feature Stacey Lowery-Bretz (CER) and Mike Klymkowsky (BER) having a conversation about and discussing strengths, limitations, and challenges of using concept inventories in research and practice. We would like their conversation and discussion to be guided by questions of interest to the community of chemistry and biology educators (researchers and practitioners). What questions do you have that you would like them to address?
