McRobbie, Campbell J., Ed.; Power, Colin N., Ed.
Presented are the 21 papers which constitute the proceedings of the ninth annual conference of the Australian Science Education Research Association at a meeting in May, 1978. Papers range from philosophical analysis of the language of science teaching to experimental research into the effects of different laboratory skill development strategies, from cognitive development in primary school children to analyses of teaching in university microbiology classes, and from evaluations of facilities and curricula to the rough theatre of the science classroom. Most of the studies fall within the psychometric paradigm and have used its methodologies, although one or two have used philosophical methods of analysis. (Author/PB)
