Citation: For his contributions to the development of discipline-based educational research on the teaching and learning of chemistry in both introductory and advanced-level courses.
Current position: Arthur Kelly Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, Education & Engineering, Purdue University
Education: B.S., chemistry, University at Buffalo; Ph.D., inorganic and organic chemistry, Indiana University, Bloomington
Bodner on his biggest research challenge: “Getting chemists and science educators to understand each other is a challenge. I’ve worked to convince chemists that the results of educational research are useful and to convince science educators that the real challenge is extending their work beyond the K–12 level and including both undergraduates and graduate students in an individual discipline, such as chemistry.”
What his colleagues say: “Dr. Bodner has focused on overcoming the challenges associated with the teaching and learning of chemistry across the full range of subdisciplines, including analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, as well as chemical engineering.”—Marcy Towns, Purdue University
