The Kahveci Group at Loyola University Chicago works at the interface of affective dimensions in chemistry education research. We apply quantitative research methods to analyze data and understand how learning complex chemistry topics is influenced by affective variables in relation to personal characteristics. Additionally, we are interested in studying dominant modalities of remote learning as an extension of the post pandemic influences on the practice of chemistry education.

1 Join

New ideas on joint research proposals and publications are welcome. We are eager to meet and collaborate with new researchers and research groups in the chemistry education domain.

2 Publishers

We are always eager to publish our studies to reach out wider community across the globe. We would be happy to talk with the publishers in the field for our research outlet.

3 Students

If you are in need of an external committee member for your Master’s or doctoral research study, our group would be interested in discussing future possibilities.

Our group welcomes new members of undergraduate students, who are interested in chemistry education research. Learning chemistry is always exciting. Likewise, researching how people learn chemistry as patterns of preferences is equally interesting and exciting.
