8th Annual International Conference on Chemistry, 20-23 July 2020, Athens, Greece
|1||How Chemistry is Taught in a Global World|
Dr. Isai Urasa, Academic Member, ATINER & Professor of Chemistry & Director, Water Chemistry Research Laboratory, Hampton University, USA.
The chemistry community plays a crucial role in finding solutions for the mounting global challenges in climate change, water resources, environmental pollution, food supplies and food safety, and health. A good quality chemical education background is a critical starting point in the development of a workforce that is well suited for these challenges. It is essential that there is some consensus within the chemistry community as to what this should entail. This symposium will provide a forum for chemistry educators to undertake a comparative overview of the undergraduate chemistry curriculum models used in different countries and universities. The goal is to identify commonalities; suggest and/or share experiences or topics that should be reflected in a good quality chemical education program; and identify and suggest ways to overcome the challenges that undermine the implementation and promotion of good quality chemical education.
