MICER Meeting

MICER17 Date for your diaries! MICER17 is scheduled for 19th May 2017. 

About MICER16, which was held in Burlington House in May 2016.

MICER16 was organised in response to a growing demand and interest in chemistry education research in the UK. The meeting focussed in particular on methods; the practicalities of how to do chemistry education research. Invited speakers with experience of completing and publishing discipline-based education research gave talks on particular methods, relating the methods to a theoretical framework, the research question, and discussing the practicalities of gathering data. Each speaker incorporated extended structured discussion so that attendees had time to discuss further issues that arise. The meeting was being organised with the journal Chemistry Education Research and Practice which is free to access at the URL: www.rsc.org/cerp.

Attendance was free thanks to the support of the RSC’s Chemistry Education Research Group (www.rsc.org/cerg) and Tertiary Education Group (www.rsc.org/tertiaryeducation).
