This programme aims to give students the academic and practical skills they need to develop a critical understanding of the role of science education, research and communication in society. After almost nine months of analytical work, and fact-finding visits to Poland, the PSF Peer Review panel’s report and recommendations on the modernisation of the national science and higher education system – to make it more transparent, more competitive and better governed – were discussed at a special meeting hosted by the Polish Ministry for Science and Higher Education. The meeting was addressed by Jarosław Gowin, Polish Minister of Science and Higher Education, and Robert-Jan Smits, Director-General of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation. The findings of the report, and its recommendations, were presented by the Chair of the PSF Peer Review Panel, Professor Georg Winckler, President of the Association of the ERSTE Foundation and former Rector of the … Read more
The Science Education MA aims to reflect contemporary theory in all aspects of practice in science education: international, formal and informal. The IJRES welcomes any research papers on education and science using techniques from and applications in any technical knowledge domain: original theoretical works, literature reviews, research reports, social issues, psychological issues, curricula, learning environments, book reviews, and review articles. The articles should be original, unpublished, and not in consideration for publication elsewhere at the time of submission to the IJRES. As an open access journal, International Journal of Research in Education and Science (IJRES) does not charge article submission or processing fees.
Generating and evaluating scientific evidence and explanations encompasses the knowledge and skills used for building and refining models and explanations (conceptual, computational, mechanistic), designing and analyzing empirical investigations and observations, and constructing and defending arguments with empirical evidence. This strand also incorporates the social practices (e.g., critiquing … Read more
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). Reasoning about data in middle school science. Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 36, 179-199.… 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. 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
