On 17th May Chemistry welcomed Prof Georgios Tsaparlis to present his RSC Education Award lecture. Prof Georgios gained his PhD in Physical Chemistry from UEA working with Prof Sid Kettle. It was in recognition of his background and the long history of Chemistry Education at UEA that he choose to receive the medal here. He is pictured with Prof Gareth Price, President of the Education Division Council, who travelled from Bath to present the award. Prof Georgios’ award lecture was entitled “Problem Solving in Chemistry Education: Issues, Problems and Solutions” and he delighted us with an informative review of the challenges presented by teaching students to solve problems, which sparked a lively discussion and lasting reflection.
