S71: History & Philosophy and the Teaching of Chemistry

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In order to plan for the future, we need to look to the past - where has the teaching of chemistry come from? Why do we teach what we do? Do we mindlessly teach what we were taught?  Who were the major influences on the teaching of chemistry and on what has been taught?  Many questions!  Do you have any of the answers?
