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. Scienceworks and the Melbourne Planetarium – offers hands-on exhibits, live demonstrations, school programs, tours, activities and shows that enable students and teachers to explore science and technology. EPA Victoria School Resources – offers a range of free resources to support schools in the teaching and learning about environmental issues. Scientific American is the essential guide to the most awe-inspiring advances in science and technology, explaining how they change our understanding of the world and shape our lives.
This module covers foundational topics essential for understanding and developing research in science education, with the aim of providing a perspective on practice. It draws on a range of relevant research and professional literature. Particular attention is given to the fluent use of concepts and theories related to the teaching and learning of science illuminating the thinking underpinning the aims, perspectives and construction of science curricula, learning theories, pedagogy and language in science education, philosophical aspects of science education, within national and international contexts.
Understanding science is multifaceted. Research has often treated aspects of scientific proficiency as discrete. However, current research indicates that proficiency in one aspect of science is closely related to proficiency in others (e.g., analytic reasoning skills are greater when one is reasoning about familiar domains). Like strands of a rope, the strands of scientific proficiency are intertwined. However, for purposes of being clear about learning and learning outcomes, the committee discusses these four strands separately (see Box 2-1 for a summary).
Figuring out what students have learned becomes more complicated as the educational demands move from rote knowledge to conceptual and practical knowledge. Dania Sheaib had the opportunity to use her longtime love of mathematics to real-world applications through the National Science Foundation’s Mathematical Sciences Graduate Internship Program. She studied the use of mathematical modeling in three-dimensional image microscopy.
You can combine the Master’s programma Educational Science and Technology with a teacher training programme. After your (Dutch) vwo degree, you can start the academic teacher training programme. The complete study route (teacher training programme + pre-Master + Master) takes four years to complete. You follow the teacher training programme at a higher academic level at the Saxion University of Applied Sciences and the Master’s programme Educational Science and Technology at the University of Twente. More information about the route (only in Dutch).
