MICER19: Fri 17th May 2019, 9.30 AM – 5 PM, City Chambers, Edinburgh, EH1 1YJ.
Methods in Chemistry Education Research (MICER) is a one day meeting focussing on the how to of education research. A series of invited speakers share insights into education research methods behind their publications; identifying strategies and explaining the rationale for their approaches. The focus of the day is to empower others to adopt particular research approaches in their own research through a combination of providing exemplars, discussion led activities, and links to further readings. All speakers at MICER are invited, and provide pre-reading in advance of the day so that participants can prepare for topics of particular interest to them.
MICER19 will grow on previous conference successes by focussing on three general themes – practical considerations in both (1) qualitative and (2) quantitative research, looking at the approaches used in actual (chemical) education research settings, and (3) managing the research process in real environments, looking at strategies for achieving results in typical UK and Irish settings, and publishing the ouctomes of that work. Speakers will outline ethical considerations in each of their contexts.
We hope that you can join us for the day in Edinburgh. The meeting is hosted in the spectacular Edinburgh City Chambers on the Royal Mile, with fantastic views of Princes St Gardens and New Town, 5 minutes from Waverley Station. We are again thankful for our ongoing sponsors, the RSC Higher Education Group and the RSC Chemical Education Research Group. In addition, the costs of moving the meeting to Edinburgh has been supported by the RSC Edinburgh and SE Scotland Local Section.
We look forward to seeing you in May!
Michael Seery (Edinburgh) and Jacquie Robson (Durham).
