Chemical Education Research

Research in Chemistry Education is concerned with investigating the best practices of teaching and learning in chemistry, identified through a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods. Specific projects include investigation of the mechanisms by which students construct understanding and the barriers that impede this construction, development of evidence-based instructional materials to enhance student learning in the classroom and in the chemistry laboratory, identification of support that graduate teaching assistants require to develop their expertise for enhancing student learning and how this evidence can be incorporated into graduate teaching assistant training.
