Let’s Do Chemistry Train-the-Trainer Workshop

Using the framework developed through the ChemAttitudes project, the Let's Do Chemistry Train-the-Trainer Workshop will take what was learned about activity content, format, and facilitation and share with members of the chemistry community who are in a position to train others in the techniques for making their own chemistry outreach activities better at stimulating interest, sense of relevance, and feelings of self-efficacy.

The Let's Do Chemistry Train-the-Trainer Workshop will be disseminated to chemistry professionals during the fall 2020 - More information coming soon

Virtual Let's Do Chemistry Train-the-Trainer Pilot Workshop

Invited chemistry professionals will be participating in a virtual Let's Do Chemistry Train-the-Trainer Pilot Workshop that will take place between May and June 2020.

Workshop Content


Welcome Module

The Welcome Module provides you with a general overview of the ChemAttitudes project and the research framework developed, which focuses on activity content, format, and facilitation methods to support participant interest, sense of relevance, and feelings of self-efficacy with respect to chemistry. 

The Welcome Module resources can be accessed at https://www.nisenet.org/catalog/lets-do-chemistry-train-trainer-pilot-workshop-welcome-module


Module 1: Activity Design - Chemistry Content

Module 1 resources focus on how the Let's Do Chemistry framework strategies related to chemistry content can be applied to hands-on activities and help participants increase their interest, relevance, and self-efficacy. 

Module 1 resources can be accessed at https://www.nisenet.org/catalog/lets-do-chemistry-train-trainer-pilot-workshop-module-1-activity-design-chemistry-content.


Module 2: Activity Design - Format

Module 2 will focus on the research framework strategy of format. Your goal is to learn about this framework strategy and consider how it could help make your hands-on activity stronger by supporting participants’ interest, relevance, or self-efficacy around chemistry.

Module 2 resources can be accessed at https://www.nisenet.org/catalog/lets-do-chemistry-train-trainer-pilot-workshop-module-2-activity-design-format


Module 3: Activity Facilitation

Coming soon


Module 4: Build Your Training
