In a Different Voice: Promises and Trials of Non-English Medium Journals
Lee, Yew-Jin
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v10 n4 p1051-1055 Dec 2015
Various issues confronting science education publications that cater for non-English speaking audiences are explored. With reference to an English-medium journal that the author co-edits, two main conundrums are discussed: (1) How to serve local school practitioners in concrete ways while fulfilling the institutional goals of academia, and (2) the struggle to promote research from non-English speaking contexts against the hegemony of the English language. It is suggested that valuing difference can create much educational value and thereby allow one's science teaching to be interrogated, evolve, and maintain its relevancy.
