Toward Enhancing Scholarship of Science Education in College Teaching
Wang, Jianjun; Luo, Xingkai
Journal of Effective Teaching, v10 n1 57-65 2010
Quality of science instruction is crucial at the college level due to the increasing demand of scientific literacy. Development of science education has been examined in this article through both contextual and comparative angles of college teaching. Different approaches have been analyzed to merge interdisciplinary efforts that articulate both artistic and scientific natures for the benefit of various constituencies. Suggestions have been provided to enhance the scholarship of science education as a subject within natural science departments. Similar to the industry partnership between R&D and customer service sectors, effective collaborations between scientists and science educators can facilitate recognition of the science education subject across the campuses of higher learning.
