Chemistry Education Research (CER)

We conduct research on the teaching, learning, and assessment of chemistry. Specifically, we

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

Are you interested in joining our group?

  • Miami undergraduates should stop by 369 Hughes.
  • Prospective graduate students should visit the Miami CER page.
  • Prospective post-docs should email Dr. Bretz
