Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Cognition in Chemistry Education

Symposium Title: Cognition in Chemistry Education
Descrption: This symposium is designed to be a gathering of researchers and educators with an interest in the role of cognition in chemistry education. We will present our findings and discuss the cognitive issues associated with the teaching and learning of chemistry. We invite researchers, graduate students and sponsored undergraduate researchers to join us in the conversation. We solicit scholarship associated with the cognitive processes of learning; the application of research findings to theoretical and practical teaching perspectives and methods; neurological and psychological foundations of learning and cognition; knowledge construction through mental models and other constructs; and other cognitive aspects of the learning/teaching paradigm.
