Symposium: Beyond Classroom Observation

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to invite abstracts from education practitioners and researchers for the symposium, "Beyond Classroom Observation," to be held at the 2022 Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE) at Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN) from July 31 - August 4. If you are interested in submitting an abstract, please do so in MAPS ( by February 28. As the symposium organizer, please reach out to me at if you have any questions.

Abstract: Classroom observation allows for qualitative and/or quantitative analysis of how instruction is carried out in terms of behavior, interactions, and/or prescribed teaching practices. What can investigators do with the data that they have gathered? This symposium explores methods in classroom observation and how they are related to, as well as how they may be applied towards, other aspects of K-12 and college chemistry education such as curricular design and reform, assessment, and general affect.
