Vicente A. Talanquer, an associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Arizona, is the recipient of the 2012 James Flack Norris Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Teaching of Chemistry.

Talanquer’s research focuses on characterizing the conceptual frameworks and the patterns of reasoning used by chemistry students to answer questions and solve problems that require qualitative reasoning.

NESACS is now accepting nominations for the 2013 award. Packages must include a primary nomination letter, supporting letters, and the candidate’s curriculum vitae. Send nomination packets electronically in PDF format to Anna Singer, NESACS administrative secretary, at secretary@nesacs.org.
