Registration has opened for the ChemED 2013 conference in Canada. The University of Waterloo will host the event from 28 July to 1 August.

This biennial conference brings together those who teach high school and introductory chemistry, and is the largest of its kind in North America. 

The 2013 programme includes a symposium on student centred approaches to teaching chemistry, covering methods such as problem based learning, peer-led team learning and process oriented guided inquiry learning. It includes hands-on labs, workshops and demonstrations. 

In 2011 ChemEd held over 200 sessions with over 120 different presenters. In recent years, attendance has ranged from 400-800 chemistry teachers and educators.

The deadline for early bird registration is 31 May.
