Faculty - Chemical Education

ICN-LogoResearch in chemical education focuses on understanding how students learn chemistry, how best to teach chemistry and how to improve learning outcomes by changing teaching methods.  There is a constant need to update the skills of chemistry teachers so chemical education is also concerned with the appropriate training of chemistry instructors. Chemical education research utilizes both quantitative and qualitative data collection methods. Quantitative methods typically involve collecting data that can then be analyzed using various statistical methods. Qualitative methods include interviews, observations, journaling, and other methods common to social science research.

At UMaine, faculty engaged in chemical education research are studying how small group active learning strategies and laboratory investigations impact student learning. Some of the faculty are also members of the RiSE Center.
