Enhancing Education

The Science Education MA aims to reflect contemporary theory in all aspects of practice in science education: international, formal and informal. E. 1998. Translating and Using Research for Improving Teacher Education in Science and Mathematics (SALISH II). Iowa City: University of Iowa, Science Education Center. Taking statements of goals seriously is another trend. Goals can and should provide the framework for the curriculum, indicate the instruction selected, and provide form and structure for evaluating successes and failures. Each of these critical factors provides a basis for doing science in education.

Interestingly, the study of technology has always been seen as more interesting and useful than the study of science alone. Further, the public has often been more aware of and supportive of technological advances than those of basic science. Vellom, R.P., and Anderson, C.W. (1999).

Educational Science And Technology

Our faculty members are leading physicians and researchers who are passionate teachers, committed to mentoring and guiding students through every step of their training. The overall objective of the Peer Review of the Polish Higher Education and Science System was to provide recommendations on the future development of Poland’s science and higher education policy in support of innovation. The specific focus areas of the Peer Review were the following: (1) Structural changes in the science and higher education; (2) Links between the higher education sector and the other actors of the innovation system; and (3) Internationalisation of the science and higher education sector – trends, key areas for improvement.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) mathematics assessment results show that average mathematics scores for fourth, eighth, and twelfth graders declined slightly for the first time in 2015 and remained flat or showed only small gains between 2005 and 2015. … Read more
