Some of our future aims are outlined below

  • To raise the profile of chemical education amongst professional chemists involved in teaching chemistry
  • To explore issues of teaching and learning related to the subject
  • To share new ideas on teaching and learning
  • To disseminate information on conferences, meetings and seminars related to chemical education
  • To increase participation in the chemical education section/division of the SACI biennial convention

 To organise seminars in chemical education conducted by chemical education researchers of note

  • To encourage research into the scholarship of teaching chemistry
  • To encourage publication in the education section of the South African Journal of Chemistry
  • To reward achievement in the field of chemical education

    Clearly this is an ambitious set of aims and we plan to start small by addressing just a few of them in the short term by 4 proposed activities, viz

     An email distribution list with possible links to a bulletin board

    • Seminars on topics on chemical education in different centres
    • Participation in the biennial conference
    • Solicitation of publications for the South African Journal of Chemistry
