Exploring cultural & ethnic diversity in Science

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


Research in chemistry education advances our understanding of how students learn chemistry and what we can do to enhance chemistry learning and teaching. We, the community of chemistry education researchers, study factors that either support or inhibit chemistry learning. We examine different learning environments and new ways in which technology can be integrated into chemistry teaching, and the relationship between chemistry, society, and other scientific disciplines. We look for elements that promote students’ motivation to study chemistry, and we constantly develop ways to prepare chemistry teachers and support their continuous development during their careers. In addition, we examine new emerging areas of research and development in chemistry education, as well as new pedagogies and technologies that might influence and advance our research and practice.
We therefore chose for the theme of conference:
“Chemistry Teaching and Learning in a Global Unified World”
This theme reflects the situation around the world in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the challenges that chemistry education has to face. The fourth Sustainable Development goal of the UN is:
“Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” (SDG-4)
This emphasizes the importance of adequate education, which is even more essential in times of a worldwide pandemic. Teaching during COVID-19 has shifted to distance learning; consequently, teachers as well as students need to become acquainted with online learning, and to search for innovative and long-term strategies in order to effectively work under these difficult circumstances. This situation has affected chemistry education as well; however, research in chemistry education has provided effective tools to deal with the changing reality.
