The Chemistry Education Division of Chemical Institute of Canada brings together members in the field of Chemistry Education.

The goals of our seminar series are: 

  • Foster community and sharing of expertise among Chemistry Education Division members
  • Provide to educators who may not always have access to wider community audiences opportunities to share their teaching and learning scholarship and activities.
  • Provide a platform for traditionally marginalized voices in chemistry education, including those in non-traditional faculty roles.
  • Provide opportunities for discussion of topics and for conversations in formats not commonly seen in departmental speaker events or conference presentations.

We are pleased to introduce a new series of virtual talks covering a wide range of topics in chemistry education, including laboratory education, online learning analytics and assessment, chemistry in Indigenous culture, BIPOC experiences in chemistry academia and much more.

How to join:

  • Once you have registered for the seminar series, you will receive a unique link to access the webinar. Please do not distribute this link.
  • Registration will be confirmed for all upcoming sessions.
