The Chemical Education Research Group will be supporting three major events about getting started and continuing in (chemistry) education research this year. Information about each is below, along with contact details for each event. These give lots of opportunity to begin and develop chemistry education research! All are welcome.
- MICER: 14th May 2018 – this is the third year of this highly successful meeting which provides practical workshop based talks on developing CER approaches. Full details about this year’s meeting is on the MICER site.
- CERNN: 29th May 2018 – an event aimed at those teaching the chemical sciences who have little to no experience in educational research and covers the issues that often stop them undertaking it. This includes the fundamental differences between education and scientific research, research design, getting ethical approval, use of qualitative data, where to publish. It will adopt a workshop approach, so people are encouraged to bring ideas, data, questions and problems along. There will be a follow up writing workshop in due course. Hosted at Strathclyde, all are welcome; queries to the email shown.
- MORSE: 2nd Nov 2018 – we are taking the MICER model and running it in Ireland. With talks and workshops from those experienced in doing science education research, the day intends to give some prompts and guidance for those embarking on or at the early stages of doing education research in the sciences. Details on the MORSE site will be added in March.
