Patrick L. Daubenmire

Patrick L. Daubenmire, Ph. D., began his work in chemistry education as high school teacher.  Following graduate school, he began work at Loyola University Chicago, where he eventually became the first tenure track chemistry education research professor in Loyola’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.  He is currently fulfilling that role as a tenured associate professor with research interests in analyzing dynamics and effects of cooperative, inquiry-based instructional approaches (e.g. POGIL and SWH), building effective professional and leadership development programs for secondary school teachers, analyzing contexts as media for developing understanding of chemistry concepts, and seeking ways to blur the lines between formal and informal learning environments in order to educate the whole student. On the chemistry education practice side of his work, Patrick participates in fostering and developing innovative, research-based curricula, which includes acting as a co-author on the 9th edition of Chemistry in Context, and acting as co-author for Healing Earth, a free, online text that integrates key principles of environmental science with related issues in ethics and spirituality.

To the potential role as Councilor/Alternate, Patrick brings a history of successful partnerships with others both inside and outside the field of chemistry education.  He has been a member of the DivCHED Program Committee for the past several years and co-led the technical program in the Division for the 252nd ACS National Meeting and will do so again for the 256th ACS National Meeting. He welcomes the opportunity to serve the Division in a new capacity by communicating between and representing the Division as a Councilor or Alternate Councilor.
