CERP 2017 theme issue: Call for papers

Themed Issue: Autumn 2017

Contributions are invited for a themed, peer-reviewed issue on Developments of key skills and attributes in chemistry education

Employers have long urged universities to equip their graduates with a range of key professional skills and graduate attributes and many universities articulate ‘graduateness’ in terms of graduate attributes and statements. These skills and attributes encompass, for example, critical thinking, problem solving, effective communication, information skills, team work, use of technology, intercultural awareness, lifelong learning, creativity and leadership, amongst others. However, meaningful development of these skills and attributes alongside subject knowledge is challenging and requires a shift in curriculum design and pedagogy. In this special themed issue we will focus on the development of key professional skills  and graduate attributes within undergraduate degree programmes.
