Announcing Methods in Chemistry Education Research 2017 #MICER17
Burlington House, London, Friday May 19th 2017. 10 AM – 5 PM
MICER17 is generously supported by the journal Chemistry Education Research and Practice (CERP). CERP is free to access, and articles can be viewed at: www.rsc.org/cerp
New this year:
- longer sessions;
- an Ethics in Education session (1.5 hrs) led by Prof Keith Taber, University of Cambridge and Editor of Chemistry Education Research and Practice – this was the single most requested item in feedback from 2016;
- a virtual flipped poster session to give attendees the opportunity to share and discuss their own research methods;
In addition, we will continue with the following components, that received good feedback from last year:
- pre-conference reading to provide participants with advance information on a topic;
- hearing from a speaker “outside the discipline” to learn from the best beyond chemistry education;
- emphasis on discussion and activity on the day;
- a limit on the number of participants.
Please register at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/micer17-tickets-29817950292 by 1st May 2017. Given the popularity of the meeting, it is likely the event will sell out, and hence early registration is advised. We will be holding the event in the beautiful surroundings of the Library at RSC Burlington House. Registration includes buffet lunch and coffee. Please note that there is no coffee on arrival, so pre-caffeinate in advance!

We intend to run a flipped poster session to allow participants to share some of their work (with a focus on methods) or outline some plans with a view to seeking advice/discussion before and on the day. Posters will be displayed on the website. You will have the option of displaying your poster publicly, or restricting it to registered participants (who will need to create an account to log in to view it).
Our speakers are detailed here, and combined are an enormous wealth of experience in the practice of planning, completing, and publishing education research across secondary and tertiary education:
