Gülçiçek, Çaglar; Kanli, Uygar – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2018
Although lab activities play an important role in physics teaching, many of these activities do not attain the expected objectives. Many reasons can be advanced for this, such as a lack of apparatus/equipment in schools, limits to the lab time allocated, teachers' lack of knowledge and skills about lab-oriented teaching methods or the teachers'…

Koponen, Ismo T.; Nousiainen, Maija – Education Sciences, 2019
Relational interlinked dependencies between concepts constitute the structure of abstract knowledge and are crucial in learning conceptual knowledge and the meaning of concepts. To explore pre-service teachers' declarative knowledge of physics concepts, we have analyzed concept networks, which agglomerate 12 pre-service teacher students'…

Ogegbo, Ayodele Abosede; Gaigher, Estelle; Salagaram, Trisha – South African Journal of Education, 2019
This study explored teachers' experiences in the teaching of electricity and magnetism during a Lesson Study intervention. Using a case study research design, a sample of 4 physical sciences teachers was conveniently selected from schools in rural and suburban areas. Due to logistical challenges, the 4 participants were grouped into 2 separately…

Moore, James Christopher – Education Sciences, 2018
We have investigated the efficacy of on-line, multimedia learning modules (MLMs) as preparation for in-class, lecture-based tutorials in electromagnetism in a physics course for natural science majors (biology and marine science). Specifically, we report the results of a multiple-group pre/post-test research design comparing two groups receiving…

Okulu, Hasan Zühtü; Ünver, Ayse Oguz – International Education Studies, 2018
The current research is to give an example to the inquiry-based science teaching implementations for facilitating knowledge acquisition and retention in a short period of time. Thus, the aim of the research is to transfer of acquired knowledge into different situations using sequential inquiry activities, which have challenging questions for…

Kizito, Ndihokubwayo; Kinya, Shimizu; Hideo, Ikeda; Takuya, Baba – Online Submission, 2019
This study is investigating the student-teachers' conception of static electricity in Rwandan teacher training colleges. The study used a pre- and post-intervention design, where two groups of students were randomly assigned in two groups. Along a period of four weeks, one group was taught using the traditional method (TRAD) while another using…
