Vogelzang, Johannes; Admiraal, Wilfried F.; van Driel, Jan H. – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
Context-based approaches aim at increasing students' learning and motivation. However, students perceive its complexity often as overwhelming, causing frustration and disengagement. Thus, there is a need for innovative teaching methods to scaffold students in context-based education. Two perspectives are used to argue that Scrum methodology, a…

Schumacher, Andrea; Reiners, Christiane S. – Science & Education, 2013
Authenticity has recently become a popular term in science education. A study focusing on authenticity in the sense of making chemistry lessons better resemble chemistry practice is carried out at the University of Cologne in the Institute of Chemical Education, where prospective chemistry teachers are trained. In the long run an innovative module…

Fuchigami, Kei; Schrandt, Matthew; Miessler, Gary L. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
A hands-on symmetry project is proposed as an innovative way of teaching point groups to undergraduate chemistry students. Traditionally, courses teaching symmetry require students to identify the point group of a given object. This project asks the reverse: students are instructed to identify an object that matches each point group. Doing so…
