Join the Virtual Conference: “Interactive Visualizations for Chemistry Teaching and Learning”

Want to learn more about how to use visualizations—animations and simulations— in chemistry education? This conference will discuss a range of topics in the study of chemistry visualizations, providing insights into: problem solving practices; student ownership; multi-model learning; and inclusive chemistry learning. Each week there are two “assigned” papers for reading, and then an open discussion period where participants can post questions and engage in a public discussion with the authors. Join us for some or all of the conference:

Time: Friday, May 8th 9 PM through Friday, June 4th 9 PM
