Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to welcome you to the 2020 ECRICE conference at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, July 6-8, 2020.

It is a great honor for us to hold this important conference on chemistry education that is recognised by EuChemS.

Research in Chemistry education advances our understanding of how students learn chemistry and what can enhance chemistry learning and teaching. We, the community of chemistry education researchers, study factors that support or inhibit chemistry learning. We examine different learning environments and new ways in which technology can be integrated in chemistry teaching, and the relationship between chemistry, society and other scientific disciplines. We look for elements that promote students’ motivation to study chemistry, and we constantly develop ways to prepare chemistry teachers and support their continuous development during their careers. We do not stop to try and examine new emergent areas of research and development that could be part of the field of chemistry education, as well as new pedagogies and technologies that might influence and advance our research and practice.

We therefore chose the theme of conference:

“Excellence and Innovation in Chemistry Teaching and Learning”

The theme reflects the innovative nature of the field of chemistry teaching and learning, as well as our constant striving for excellence. Yet, we remind ourselves a quote of Marie Curie “Have no fear of perfection; you’ll never reach it.”

We invite you, chemistry education researchers, to look at the conference strands, to submit your abstracts and to participate in the ECRICE 2020 meeting.

Together with the Scientific and the Local Organizing Committee, we are looking forward to seeing you in Israel.

Enjoy the conference!
