Kwan, Ann H.; Mobli, Mehdi; Schirra, Horst J.; Wilson, Jennifer C.; Jones, Oliver A. H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Magnetic resonance is a powerful technology that has had a major impact across the physical, life, and medical sciences, from chemistry to medical imaging, with ever-expanding applications in new areas as diverse as mining and food science. It is, however, also a difficult subject to teach, as the theory is complex and requires some familiarity…

Luft, Julie A.; Whitworth, Brooke A.; Berry, Amanda; Navy, Shannon; Kind, Vanessa – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Science teacher professional development is complex. Phases in a teacher's career necessitate different professional learning opportunities. Furthermore, knowledge bases, practices, and attributes need to be cultivated during these times. For science teachers, it is not always evident how to link professional learning opportunities progressively…

Pinheiro, Romulo, Ed.; Benneworth, Paul, Ed.; Jones, Glen A., Ed. – Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2012
Universities are under increasing pressure to help promote socio-economic growth in their local communities. However until now, no systematic, critical attention has been paid to the factors and mechanisms that currently make this process so daunting. In Universities and Regional Development, scholars from Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia…

Penalva, Jose – European Educational Research Journal, 2011
This article develops the idea that the sciences of the design perspective offer a more adequate solution for bridging the gap between explanations and prescriptions in educational research. This idea is developed over the following steps: first, the scope of the analysis and the problem of the relationship between explanations and prescription…

Marley, Scott C.; Levin, Joel R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2011
A prescriptive statement is a recommendation that, if a course of action is taken, then a desirable outcome will likely occur. For example, in reading research recommending that teachers apply an intervention targeted at a specific reading skill to improve children's reading performance is a prescriptive statement. In our view, these statements…

Gray, Donald, Ed.; Colucci-Gray, Laura, Ed.; Camino, Elena, Ed. – Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2011
Recent work in science and technological studies has provided a clearer understanding of the way in which science functions in society and the interconnectedness among different strands of science, policy, economy and environment. It is well acknowledged that a different way of thinking is required in order to address problems facing the global…

Usman, Muhammad; Singh, Amit – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2011
The beginning of modern science is marked by efforts of pioneers to understand the natural world using a quantitative approach. As Galileo wrote, "the book of nature is written in the language of mathematics". The traditional undergraduate course curriculum is heavily focused on individual disciplines like biology, physics, chemistry,…

Berlin, Donna F., Ed.; White, Arthur L., Ed. – International Consortium for Research in Science and Mathematics Education (NJ3), 2011
The chapters in this book reflect the work of science and mathematics educators who have worked for many years at the international level. As members of the International Consortium for Research in Science and Mathematics Education, their work provides readers with issues, models, practices, and research results that have applicability and…

National Academies Press, 2012
In many countries, colleges and universities are where the majority of innovative research is done; in all cases, they are where future scientists receive both their initial training and their initial introduction to the norms of scientific conduct regardless of their eventual career paths. Thus, institutions of higher education are particularly…

Arkadiy, Leonov – European Journal of Physics, 2009
The problem of obtaining the apparent equation of motion and shape of a moving body from its arbitrary given equation of motion in special relativity is considered. Also the inverse problem of obtaining the body's equation of motion from a known equation of motion of its image is discussed. Some examples of this problem solution are considered. As…

Childs, Peter E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2009
Despite several decades of research into the teaching and learning of Science/Chemistry, at both secondary and tertiary level, it has had relatively little impact on practice. In many countries interest in studying Science at school and university is falling, and there is concern over falling numbers and falling standards. There is a changing…

Fensham, Peter J. – Science Education, 2009
Policy has been a much neglected area for research in science education. In their neglect of policy studies, researchers have maintained an ongoing naivete about the politics of science education. In doing so, they often overestimate the implications of their research findings about practice and ignore the interplay between the stakeholders beyond…
