The Journal of Technology and Science Education (JOTSE) has been created as a contribution to the development and improvement of scientific and technological education by constituting a common space to share experiences to all those who, somehow, are involved in the teaching and learning processes of engineering studies, in all modalities. The Science SIG hostedthe research strand of SCICON 2016, the bi-annual conference for science teachers in Lower Hutt, in July 2016. The collaboration with SCICON is intended to make the research-practice nexus more visible. The theme of the research strand, ‘Shaking up science education’ builds on the Conference Theme of ‘Earth shattering science’ and recognises the large number of individuals and groups involved in innovative research projects across New Zealand – from teaching inquiries undertaken by teachers in their own classrooms, to national initiatives seeking to inform science education and the Government’s goal of a more scientifically engaged public.… Read more
College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado provides excellence in teacher education, counseling, technology and psychology, at the undergraduate and graduate level. Education science provides you with an extensive overview of the field of education. You study the roles that learning, education and pedagogics play in schools, educational institutions, and in businesses and political organisations. You focus on societal analysis and studying how we, as a society, should live in future and therefore, what educations and training we will need to do that.
After Year 1, you will specialize in the more advanced study of biology, and either chemistry OR physics OR agricultural science. Throughout the four years, there is a strong emphasis on acquiring practical scientific skills through laboratory work, field work and assignments. In your final year, you will select a research topic. This will develop your skills in analysis, problem-solving and scientific … Read more
AAAS programs conduct educational research and development, provide resources for the classroom and other science learning settings and offer professional development for teachers. In 2017, the STEM Partnerships Forum was established as one of the key national collaborative actions under the National STEM School Education Strategy 2016-2026. Chaired by Dr Alan Finkel AO, Australia’s Chief Scientist, the Forum brings together leaders from industry and education to facilitate a more strategic approach to school-based partnerships with businesses and industry across Australia in order to develop the engagement, aspiration, capability and attainment of students in STEM.
The content versus process debate continues and is counterproductive at best. Science cannot be characterized by either content (products produced by scientists) or process (behaviors that bring scientists to new understandings). Effective teacher education programs cannot be developed if science preparation focuses on content mastery and the education component focuses on process. Teachers must learn to … Read more
Our faculty members are leading physicians and researchers who are passionate teachers, committed to mentoring and guiding students through every step of their training. Kids usually form a basic opinion about the sciences shortly after beginning school. If this is a negative opinion, it can be hard to engage those students in science as they grow older. Engaging young students with exciting material and experiences motivates them to learn and pursue the sciences throughout school. Building scientific understanding in the general public requires understanding of the motivations and interests that bring people to science.
The two-year Master in Educational Sciences aims to prepare students for academic and professional interventions in the field of educational innovation. It prepares students for research into the nature, development and features of educational actors, institutions, related policies, and processes in educational development and educational practices.
All students undertake either a dissertation or a report in … Read more
AAAS programs conduct educational research and development, provide resources for the classroom and other science learning settings and offer professional development for teachers. Here at UL, various learner support systems are in place to help those having difficulty with subjects they may not have done for Leaving Cert. Personally, I had never studied Physics at school and found that by dropping into the Science Learning Centre, I was well able to keep up with classmates. College has been THE best time of my life and choosing this course has definitely helped in making it the enjoyable experience it has been.
Effective preservice programs integrate science and education and often require five years. Science & Education publishes research using historical, philosophical, and sociological approaches in order to improve teaching, learning, and curricula in science and mathematics. Given that the focus in the ‘science leadership challenge’ is on STEM education AND science … Read more
