This conference, run under the a
uspices of the EuCheMS Division of Chemical Education and the RSC Higher Education Group, is concerned with the teaching and learning of Chemistry at third (university and college) level. Papers may deal with the practice of teaching Chemistry or with research into the teaching and learning of Chemistry at degree or postgraduate level. This includes the secondary-tertiary transition, the promotion of Chemistry to increase the uptake into third level Chemistry courses, and the training of chemistry teachers.
