W59: Misconceptions in chemistry

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Students develop their own understanding of how "nature really works." These pre-concepts are brought to school and teachers have to reflect and act on them for better instruction. In addition, there are "school-made misconceptions" which originate from inappropriate curriculum and instructional materials. This workshop is aimed to help teachers and professors diagnose and cure the pre-concepts. Participants will do several key hands-on activities that expose learner's misconceptions. This will be followed by discussion of ideas, criticizing prior knowledge and finally presenting the correct chemical concepts.
