Finding alternative ways to observe objects or processes that cannot be seen by the naked eye is critical in chemistry instruction. This symposium will showcase both practice and research-based approaches that have shown effectiveness in promoting visualization and consequently, understanding of chemical concepts. Topics of interest may include the use of well-designed interventions and resources, role of modeling in the development of visualization tools, instruments to monitor the promotion of visual-skills, and visualization as a path to achieve cognitive gains. Abstracts must clearly describe the methodology and results from either the practice and/or research components.
