Consider Submitting a New & Noteworthy Paper

Hi Chemistry Education Community, 

            Have you read a chemistry education research paper in the last year that changed how you think about research or practice? Such a paper might add nuance to how you think about the assets students bring to the classroom, or suggest large-scale policy changes that are needed to cultivate more equitable chemistry learning spaces. If you can think of a landmark paper in our field, that was published in the last year, please suggest it for inclusion in the New and Noteworthy Symposium! This symposium, which is sponsored by Chemical Education Research Committee of the Division of Chemical Education, is meant to highlight the best new scholarship in our field. Authors of papers selected for inclusion in this symposium will be invited to present at the 2023 Spring Meeting of the ACS in Indianapolis, IN. 

            To nominate a paper for the New and Noteworthy Symposium, please provide a pdf file copy of a paper published in a peer-reviewed journal and a brief statement of why the paper is new and noteworthy based upon the quality and impact of the theoretical/conceptual framework, research question or problem, design of the study, analysis and overall contribution to the field. Self-nominations are welcome. Send the pdf file of the paper and nomination statement to:

Ryan Stowe
University of Wisconsin – Madison
Department of Chemistry

Deadline for the receipt of nominations midnight on August 20th, 2022. 

Review of nominated papers will be completed an announced in early fall before the deadline for submission of an abstract to the Division of Chemical Education for the Indianapolis ACS National Meeting.
