My job at the University of Twente was to develop a part of the new curriculum for chemistry lessons at secondary school in the Netherlands. 
I will then research how students are learning in that part of the curriculum. This research has resulted in several papers, reports and presentation. The next presentation will be at the ORD (Education Research Days) in Gent (http://allserv.ugent.be/~dgombeir/ORD2005/Startpagina.htm) from May 30 till June 1.
The series of lessons I developed can be seen if you click here (in Dutch).
