2024 RACI Chemical Education Division Symposium (CED1643)

Starts:  Jul 1, 2024 09:00 (ET)
Ends:  Jul 3, 2024 15:30 (ET)
Associated with  Chemical Education Division

The 2024 RACI Chemical Education Division Symposium aims to bring together the diverse community representing chemistry educators (engaged in research and practice) who teach in tertiary and secondary contexts in Australia.

We welcome members in secondary education and of international communities to join us and share their work.

The symposium is typically scheduled in years between major RACI meetings, including meetings such as National Congress. 

This symposium is in-person with an emphasis on deeper discussions and opportunities to network with peers.

The 2024 symposium has an overarching theme:  Connecting education research and practice.

This broad theme enables the community to identify the more specific topics that the meeting will address therefore there will not be formal themes for the meeting.
