Talk Title: Cultivating modeling and systems thinking Competence in chemistry education
Mei-Hung Chiu is a Professor Emerita of Science Education of the Graduate Institute of Science Education (GISE) of the National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU). Her research interests include (1) eliciting students’ conceptional construction and conceptual change in chemistry education, (2) promoting students’ miodeling competence, (3) exploring whether facial microexpression state (FMES) changes can be used to identify moments of conceptual change in science learning, and (4) applying augmented reality for learning structures of organic compounds. She has published over 150 articles in science education and chemistry education in national and international well-known journals. She was a recipient of the Distinguished Contribution to Chemical Education Award from the Federation of Asian Chemical Societies (FACS) in 2009, the Distinguished Contribution to Science Education Award from East-Asian Science Education Association (EASE) in 2016 and a recipient of the 2021 Distinguished Woman in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering from IUPAC. Finally, she was elected as a member of governing board and a fellow of International Science Council in 2022.
