Activities of the committee include:

Monitor and report on technological trends that may impact the way in which Division members practice their profession.
- Monitor and report on developments in chemistry education.
- Identify emerging areas of interest in chemical education that are related to Division interests and provide recommendations as to how these areas can be incorporated into Division programs and activities.
- Provide written reports on all key findings, along with appropriate recommendations, with and distribution to all Division committee chairs.
- Work with Division committees to implement changes to activities and programs in response to identified trends.
