About Mustafa Sözbilir

Affiliation: Atatürk University, Turkey 

I am a professor of chemistry education. My research interests include teacher training, curriculum evaluation, how students’ learn in science/chemistry, concept learning and teaching in science, context, problem-based teaching, teaching sience/chemistry to visually impaired students and undergraduates’ understandings of chemical ideas in thermodynamics and students’ misconceptions.

I am interested in how to teach science/chemistry effectively to visually impaired students.
