The YCES blog requests your feedback!

by Jessica Reed, Iowa State University

Hello Younger Chemistry Education Scholars!

Welcome back to a new school year and a new adventure. I hope you had a productive summer, and are thinking ahead to what goals you want to accomplish this school year. With that in mind, I wanted to get your feedback about the YCES’ Blog.

The goal of the blog is to connect beginning scholars of chemistry education (graduate students, post docs, and early career faculty) and to provide some professional development via blog posts related to content relevant to this population.  What kinds of topics would you like to see featured on the blog? What’s a question that you have about grad school, life as a post doc, or starting a career? You are likely not the only person who has this question and has been struggling to find the answer!

We’ll be updating the blog with new content soon, but in the meantime, please post any ideas you have for featured blog posts. This will better help us identify not only content for the blog, but also writers who can best represent those topics or experiences.

If you’d like to contribute content to the blog, please contact Jessica Reed at

Best wishes for the 2013-2014 academic year!
