Lavi, Rea; Dori, Yehudit Judy – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Systems thinking is an important skill in science and engineering education. Our study objectives were (1) to create the basis for a systems thinking language common to both science education and engineering education, and (2) to apply this language to assess science and engineering teachers' systems thinking. We administered two assignments to…

Aaron Price, C.; Chiu, A. – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
We present results of an experimental study of an urban, museum-based science teacher PD programme. A total of 125 teachers and 1676 of their students in grades 4-8 were tested at the beginning and end of the school year in which the PD programme took place. Teachers and students were assessed on subject content knowledge and attitudes towards…

Labouta, Hagar Ibrahim; Kenny, Natasha A.; Li, Rui; Anikovskiy, Max; Reid, Leslie; Cramb, David Thomas – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
Research on understanding the full extent that an authentic science research experience engages students in how scientists think and act is sparse. 'Learning-science-by-doing-science' (LSDS) is an emerging self-guided process-learning model in postsecondary science education. It offers authentic science research opportunities that drive students…
