ECRICE 2020 was first planned to take place at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, in July 6-8, 2020 and ultimately postponed because of the COVID19 situation worldwide
Excellence and Innovation in Chemistry Teaching and Learning
Research in Chemistry education advances our understanding of how students learn chemistry and what can enhance chemistry learning and teaching. It can gain from collaboration between scientists from different countries in examining different learning environments and new ways in which technological societal, and economic issues. As researchers, 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.
The European Conference on Research in Chemistry Education is aiming at improving science education all over the world. It is significant at present time, due to the fact that there is a decline in students in high school who choose to major in chemistry, and as a result – a shortage of chemistry students at the universities. Researchers from all over the world are invited.
The theme of ECRICE 2020 –Excellence and Innovation in Chemistry Teaching and Learning– reflects the innovative nature of the field of chemistry teaching and learning, as well as our constant striving for excellence. Yet, we remind ourselves a quote of Marie Curie “Have no fear of perfection; you’ll never reach it.”
