EDITION 2016-2017

How would you like chemistry to be taught?

Since one of the objectives of our Network is the optimization of the educational systems, the last edition of the Student Contest has been opened to the students and teachers of schools and universities on how they wanted Chemistry to be taught.

The results obtained in the last year convinced us to repeat the same theme in the edition 2016-2017 of previous.

In this edition we would like National coordinators ask more students (in particular the recent graduates) to participate to have their own opinion and their suggestions.

One of the main objectives of the Contest is to encourage innovative teaching systems in order to make more and more interesting Chemistry in the eyes of the students.

That is why in this edition of the originality of the presentation will be much valued.




A contest for digital learning objects in chemistry

Learning objects are reusable digital resources supporting active and innovative learning. In chemistry, learning objects are self-contained presentations of teaching units explaining concepts or processes.

They can be a PowerPoint type presentation, an interactive application, a video, a concept map, etc.

The objects' language is optional (official European Union language).




Anyone teaching chemistry at every level of education

All learning objects selected will be uploaded to the repository operated by the European Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Education Network.

All participants will have free access to the repository for educational purposes.




Uploading of learning objects will take place from September 15th to  January 15th, 2017.




..to upload your Artwork

The learning objects must be uploaded electronically.

The electronic product must be named in the following way:


In the contest website http://ecampus.chem.auth.gr/contest/ webpage the learning objects will be uploaded and presented for voting.

..the three best artworks will be chosen

If there are more than three learning objects by country, the national coordinator together with a nominated expert by the other colleagues of the country, will select the three best artworks based on the following parameters::

  • Number of votes: 30/100
  • Innovation: 40/100
  • Correctness (of the teaching units): 30/100
  • Balance and depth level audience: 30/100

The three Learning Objects (possibly translated in English) selected in the national phase will participate in the final international phase. If they have been submitted three or less than three learning objects by country, these will participate directly in the finals.

In the international phase, the artworks will be submitted to public audiences for voting. The deadline for voting will be February 15th 26th 2017. The finalist artworks will receive a Diploma for the participation.

Between all finalists the three best artworks will be selected by a Commission made by the National Coordinators who participated in the contest by using the following criteria:

  • innovative presentation 40%
  • focused topic: 30%
  • clarity of presentation 30%

The results will be published at the end of February 2017 on the contest web page.

Their authors (one for each winner artwork) will receive as award Android Tablets offered by the European Chemistry Thematic Network together with a Diploma.
