Welcome to the Abrams chemical education research group homepage. Our work focuses on developing novel approaches to teaching introductory chemistry that excite students across disciplines.

Some of our active projects include:

  • BU Chemical Writing Program,
  • JUST activities,
  • Teaching analytical chemistry labs using a hybrid class model (partially-flipped),
  • Workshops and tutorials for supporting incoming students in the sciences,
  • ... and more.
