Shumow, Lee; Schmidt, Jennifer A. – Educational Leadership, 2015
Why and under what conditions might students value their science learning? To find out, the authors observed approximately 400 science classes. They found that although several teachers were amazingly adept at regularly promoting the value of science, many others missed out on important opportunities to promote the value of science. The authors…

Bennett, Dawn; Knight, Elizabeth; Bell, Kenton – Teaching in Higher Education, 2020
If graduates from STEMM -- science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medical sciences -- are to successfully navigate the labour market, they need diverse capabilities alongside self- and career awareness. The focus of this study was STEMM students' perceptions of self, career and employability. The study asked over 2,000 commencing…

Joshi, Aditi; Ray, Sue; Odierna, Donna H.; Smith, Monica – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2019
As researchers, faculty, and staff who have worked with students with disabilities including visual impairments, the authors aimed to explore chiropractic as an academic choice for people with visual impairments and how such programs should be adapted to serve these students. They interviewed students, faculty, and staff at a chiropractic college…

Musson, Aaron A. – ProQuest LLC, 2018
Formative assessment, or "assessment for learning," is an essential component of the interactions between teachers and learners. Teachers elicit statements of understandings to decide their next instructional steps. Similarly, students communicate what they know, and apply teachers' responses. Formative assessment is as much assessment…

Peterson, Bryanne – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2020
Watson and McMahon's (2005) work identified a need for research to examine the what and how of children's career development learning; this research is a start to answering that call, specifically focusing on STEM career interest as a precursor to development due to the current needs nationally for an increase in the STEM pipeline. This study…

Dagyar, Miray; Kasalak, Gamze; Ugurlu, Nermin – Cypriot Journal of Educational Sciences, 2020
This study aimed to determine to what extent undergraduate students' level of academic career awareness and demographic variables predicted their level of academic career interest. The sample consisted of 3,696 students studying at 16 faculties, who were 3rd- and 4th-year undergraduate students from Akdeniz University in the fall semester of…

Angervall, Petra; Gustafsson, Jan – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2016
In the context of higher education in Sweden, we see how major policy change is forming the field of Education Sciences. This change has promoted an increased focus on competitiveness, while reducing inefficiencies in mass-education. It has given legitimacy to specific recruitment strategies and career paths, but can also explain what determines…

Šorgo, Andrej; Špernjak, Andreja – Journal of Baltic Science Education, 2020
In Slovenia, as in many other countries, interest in seeking careers in science, technology and engineering-related disciplines is low, which can be recognized as a problem. The influence of general interest in biology, the content, and teaching of Biology in 9-year basic school (age 14-15) and general upper-secondary schools (age 15-18) on the…

Connolly, Mark R.; Lee, You-Geon; Savoy, Julia N. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2018
To help prepare future faculty in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to teach undergraduates, more research universities are offering teaching development (TD) programs to doctoral students who aspire to academic careers. Using social cognitive career theory, we examine the effects of TD programs on early-career STEM…

Deehan, James; Danaia, Lena; McKinnon, David H. – Research in Science Education, 2020
The science achievement of primary students, both in Australia and abroad, has been the subject of intensive research in recent decades. Consequently, much research has been conducted to investigate primary science education. Within this literature, there is a striking juxtaposition between tertiary science teaching preparation programs and the…

Ehsan, Hoda; Rehmat, Abeera P.; Cardella, Monica E. – Science and Children, 2019
Computational thinking can provide a basis for problem solving, for making evidence-based decisions, and for learning to code or create programs. Therefore, it is critical that all students across the K-12 continuum--including students in the early grades--have opportunities to begin developing problem solving and computational thinking skills.…

Snyder, Catherine; Oliveira, Alandeom W.; Paska, Lawrence M. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2013
This study examines the transformation (professional growth) of career-changing women scientists who decided to become teachers. Drawing upon Mezirow's Transformative Learning Theory, we tracked their transformation for 3 years. Our findings revealed multiple identities, disorientation, a perceived sense of meaninglessness, loss and eventual…

Brown, Rachael Eriksen; Bogiages, Christopher A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Teachers often struggle to utilize reform-based teaching strategies in their first few years of teaching for many reasons (Ball, Thames & Phelps, Journal of Teacher Education 59, 389-407, 2008; Berlin & White, "International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education" 8, 97-115, 2010; Frykholm & Glasson, "School…
