INTRODUCTION TO WORKSHOP

Students must know how science works

There is widespread agreement that modern science teaching must impart students with more than just “core” content matter knowledge. Students at post elementary levels must acquire an understanding of how science operates and how science influences - and is influenced by – human, cultural, technological, and societal factors. They must not only learn science, they must also learn about science - how science works.

Difficult to teach

At the same time, there is evidence that teachers consistently find it difficult to teach historical, sociological, and philosophical knowledge about science in ways that their students find meaningful and motivating. This is in spite of the large amount of knowledge about science that has been accumulated through historical, philosophical, and other studies of the natural sciences.

Engaging and meaningful science teaching

In this workshop we want to draw together a group of historians and/or philosophers of science with an interest in science teaching on the one hand, and science education researchers with an interest in the nature of science and how to teach it, on the other. We will also look at what challenges teachers encounter when teaching meta-knowledge of science as part of science teaching, and how the nature of such challenges may be related to insights from science studies?

Dialogue between science studies and science education

We think that intensive and creative dialogue between the two traditions of scholarship is needed to develop new narratives and new approaches that may enable teachers to give secondary and upper secondary school students realistic and modern ideas about what science is and what science can do.

 

MAIN THEMES OF THE WORKSHOP

New narratives, themes, and cases.
The students’ attention.

The teachers’ needs.
