Teachers College Press
How can we use new technology to support and educate the science leaders of tomorrow? This unique book describes the design, development, and implementation of an effective science leadership program that promotes collaboration among scientists and science educators, provides authentic research experiences for educators, and facilitates adaptation and evaluation of these experiences for students in secondary and postsecondary classrooms. The information technology used focuses on visualization, simulation, modeling, and analyses of complex data sets. The book also examines program outcomes, including analyses of resulting classroom implementation and impacts on science and education faculty, graduate students, and secondary science teachers and their students. Book features include: (1) An in-depth look at an integrated, problem-based science education leadership program; (2) Guidance for developing science education leaders who can use information technology to transfer current science research into the classroom; and (3) A focus on the use of information technology, integrated professional development experiences, and a shared research agenda. Contributors include Gillian Acheson, Ruth Anderson, Lawrence Griffing, Bruce Herbert, Margaret Hobson, Cathleen C. Loving, Karen McNeal, Jim Minstrell, George M. Nickles, Susan Pedersen, Carol Stuessy, and X. Ben Wu. [Foreword by Richard Duschl.]
