Abstract submission for the Spring 2015 ACS National Meeting in Denver, CO

Greetings from the DivCHED program organizers for the spring 2015 national meeting in Denver!

Please be reminded of an important deadline - The new MAPS system will close to authors for the CHED symposia on Monday, November 3 at midnight.

Did you know that, for a normal national meeting, more than 50% of the DivCHED abstracts are submitted during the last four days before the deadline? That period of the Friday before the deadline through the Monday deadline is typically a very stressful time for authors and organizers.

Considerations for Choosing Stat Packages in CER

by Jordan Harshman

*A list of stat program acronyms that I use throughout this blog is at the end.

Chances are, sometime in your CER-related career you’ll end up with the need (possibly even the desire) to analyze quantitative data. In the analysis and visualization of quantitative data, you have a growing list of statistical programs to choose from. The impetus for writing this blog post is something that I hope I can convince you of: which program(s) you choose to analyze your data directly influences the quality of your analysis, therefore your research.

If you do research in the area of education for sustainable development or if you have created innovative curricular materials in this area, perhaps with a connection to innovative technologies ple

Why I chose an instructor position after graduation

by Daniel Cruz-Ramírez de Arellano, Ph.D.

A little over a year ago I graduated from a doctoral program in chemistry education research. It was a long road filled with challenges and triumphs. Of course, it is easy to generically call them “challenges and triumphs” when one is looking back on an already completed goal; but when one is living it, going through the daily trials, the process might seem more arduous than what was anticipated. In order to keep my motivation up, I found it extremely helpful to keep my eye on the prize, to constantly remind myself why I had decided to embark on the journey through graduate school. In my case, I wanted to be a college professor.

DivCHED Committee on Safety

DivCHED has a long history of working the Chemical Health and Safety (CHAS) division over the years. The creation of a standing committee on Safety within the committee structure of DivCHED has been suggested. The goals of this committee would be determined by a small working group of interested members of DivCHED who would put together a proposal that could be sent to the DivCHED Executive Committee for their consideration. If you would be interested in being a member of that working group, please contact Dave Finster at dfinster@wittenberg.edu.
