Conceptual Change Research and Science Education Practice: A Response from Educators
Siry, Christina; Horowitz, Gail; Otulaja, Femi S.; Gillespie, Nicole; Shady, Ashraf; Augustin, Line A.
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v3 n2 p451-470 Jul 2008
We discuss the eight papers in this issue of "Cultural Studies of Science Education" focusing on the debate over conceptual change in science education and explore the issues that have emerged for us as we consider how conceptual change research relates to our practice as science educators. In presenting our interpretations of this research, we consider the role of participants in the research process and contextual factors in conducting research on science conceptions, and draw implications for the teaching of science.
