Chemistry Education Research (CER)

cropped group

We investigate the teaching, learning, and assessment of chemistry. Specifically, we

  • investigate how students construct &  interpret multiple chemistry representations
    • macroscopic (human senses)
    • particulate (molecules, ions, atoms)     
    • symbolic (chemistry as a 
      “foreign language”)
  • develop tools to assess meaningful learning
    • cognitive (thinking about chemistry)
    • affective (feelings about chemistry)
    • psychomotor (doing of chemistry)

Are you interested in joining our group?

  • Miami undergraduates should stop by 369 Hughes.

  • Prospective post-docs: a position funded by NSF is now available.
