BCCE “The Mole Storytelling Jam” (A Social Event)

The cast of the 2018 Mole Storytelling Jam.

An open mic opportunity to share. Theme: Teaching Stories - “What I learned about teaching chemistry that I wish I’d known earlier”.

National programs like Story Collider, The Moth and Radio Lab feature scientists telling stories about what they do and why they do it. What about chemistry teachers? We invite you to tell your story in the second season of "The Mole," the story event for and by chemical educators. The topic for our 26th BCCE session is: "What I learned later that I wish I'd known earlier." Stories should be 5 to 8 minutes in duration. Comments from audience members who attended “The Mole” at the 25th BCCE: “It was awesome!” “It was magical!” “I had such a great time!” Several people expressed that listening to other chemistry instructors share their personal stories made the listener feel more connected to the wider chemical education community because the audience could relate and see themselves in every one of them. Sign-up to share your hard-won wisdom by e-mailing a title, outline and approximate length of your story to the BCCE story masters Holly Walter Kerby ([email protected]) or Maria Gallardo-Williams ([email protected]) by Friday, April 17, 2020. Spots are limited (so sign up NOW). Questions & comments welcomed. “The Mole Story Telling Jam” will be held Wednesday July 22, 5 to 6:30pm in the Construction and Engineering Hall in The LaSells Stewart Center.
