Ideas from Science: An Experiment in Adult Education
Morris, Andrew
Physics Education, v38 n1 p35-40 Jan 2003
This article reports on an experimental scheme in adult education designed for people with curiosity about, but limited formal education in, science. It is offered within a department of humanities and focuses on "ideas" drawn from science, rather than on facts, phenomena or formulae. It involves different approaches to teaching, learning and the curriculum from those traditionally used in the formal education of young people but raises issues of interest in teaching any age. (Contains 11 information boxes.)
