The conference would like to bridge the gap between chemistry researchers and chemistry teachers. Except the academic research dissemination, the conference is devoted to increase the opportunities of the communication between theory and empirical teaching. The discussion topics are based on the real needs of in-service teachers to create. After the conference, we look forward to increase the communication between chemistry scholars and chemistry teachers as well as to provide more and more efficient assistance in real classroom instruction. Follows are the topics in the conference:
1. New era of inter-dislinary chemistry
2. Students’ conceptions and conceptual change
3. Analysis of classroom discourse and instructional strategies
4. Representation of textbooks
5. Chemistry in daily life
6. Lab activities
7. Use of audio-visual instruments in classes
8. Attitude toward chemistry.
9. Sharing / exhibiting of products of science fairs
Exhibition of media, textbooks and experiment equipment
Sharing / exhibiting of products of science fairs
The conference welcomes in-service and pre-service teachers, professors, researchers, graduate/ undergraduate students, high school students who have a mind to promote chemistry education.
