Jotse is an international Journal aiming at publishing interdisciplinary research within the university education framework and it is especially focused on the fields of Technology and Science. Carey, 1985; Chi, Feltovich, and Glaser, 1981; Goswami and Brown, 1989; see also the discussion in Chapter 5 ). Not surprisingly, both children’s and adults’ scientific reasoning tends to be strongest in domains in which their knowledge is strongest. Therefore, if the goal is to advance the leading edge of children’s scientific reasoning, their instruction needs to be grounded in contexts that also build on their relatively robust understanding of content. There is also mounting evidence that knowledge of scientific explanations of the natural world is advanced through generating and evaluating scientific evidence. For example, instruction designed to engage students in model-based reasoning advances their conceptual understanding of natural phenomena (see, for example, Brown and Clement, 1989; Lehrer et al., 2001; Stewart, Cartier, and Passmore, 2005; White, 1993; Wiser and Amin, 2001; see also the discussions in Chapter 4 and Chapter 9 ).
Taronga is home to the largest Zoo-based conservation science team in Australia and has been running formal education programs for more than 40 years. Now, students from preschool to PhD will be able to study, explore and be inspired by our growing team of scientists, researchers and wildlife field staff as they pioneer solutions to save species from the brink of extinction.
The Educational Science and Technology programme focuses on the design and evaluation of teaching and learning programmes in schools and organizations. The scope is wide: from the instruction of young children in primary school to developing interactive materials for vocational education, and from assessing the quality of schooling and school performance to talent and leadership development, and in-company re-training.
In Secondary education you will typically take Discipline studies to teach two learning areas from a range of subjects. You will take these studies within the partner degree course in disciplines of your choice from the available specialist teaching areas. Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia is located in Jl. Dr. Setiabudhi No. 229, Bandung, West Java. Our conference will be held in JICA building of Faculty of Math and Science Education. The picture below shows our university map.
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.
