Volunteers Sought to Shape the Future of ECS Continuing Education

The ECS Education Committee recently voted to combine the Short Course Subcommittee and Career and Professional Development Subcommittee into one committee: the ECS Continuing Education Subcommittee. The conjoined committee is looking for motivated individuals to help shape the future of continuing education opportunities for the ECS community.

As the fields of electrochemistry and solid state science and related technologies continue to evolve, so do the educational needs of our community. COVID-19 changed education dramatically, forcing a precipitous shift away from the classroom to online learning. While face-to-face education can never be completely replaced, certain aspects of online learning are here to stay.

Be part of the dialog on how the Society maintains its preeminence in continuing education in electrochemistry and solid state science and related technologies—and meets the challenges of an ever-changing education landscape!
