IUPAC International Conference on Chemistry Education 2020
The 26th IUPAC International Conference on Chemistry Education, ICCE 2020, will be held in Cape Town, South Africa, from 13-17 July 2020. We invite abstracts for oral submissions, posters, workshops or symposia.
The theme for the conference is a “2020 vision of Chemistry Education” which was inspired by the vision of Nelson Mandela who said:
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
ICCE 2020 is a forum where South African and International chemistry educators can build connections between research and practice and provides an opportunity to build partnerships between local and international educators to provide a legacy on which to build the education system envisaged by Nelson Mandela.
Programme themes for the conference include:
- Curriculum and systems thinking in chemistry education
- Context and diversity in chemistry education
- Teacher education, development and learning communities
- Teacher knowledge
- Practical work in chemistry
- Linking chemistry to industry
- Chemistry and the environment
- Modelling in the teaching of chemistry
Authors submitting abstracts for oral presentations will be asked to indicate an interest in developing their presentation into a paper to be published in a special issue of the IUPAC Journal, Chemistry Teacher International, https://www.degruyter.com/view/j/cti
