Future of Chemical Education 2023: Challenges in Teaching Chemistry

Within the framework of the Fall Meeting of the Swiss Chemical Society the Division of Chemical Education organises a symposium for those involved in teaching chemistry at different levels such as Sek I, Sek II, Universities of Applied Sciences (FH) and Universities. The major objective of this symposium are the challenges related to teaching chemistry in the first year of education at the university.

Professors and teachers from all Swiss universities and international experts will share their view, experience, strategies and solutions gained and developed while dealing with the chemistry courses for a large body of students, who just recently left the high schools and commenced their studies at the university.

In this sense we would like to invite you to take part in the Future of Chemical Education 2023, which will take place on August 24, 2023, in Bern.
