Dukhan, Shalini; Brenner, Elisabeth; Cameron, Ann – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
Learning within first-year biology is about inquiry, but in this content-heavy science students can easily fall into the trap of parrot-fashion learning. This study investigates the influence of lecturers' expectation of students in meaning making on the nature of their slides and the quality of students' note-making. Data were collected by…

Woolway, Jenny; Msimanga, Audrey; Lelliott, Anthony – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
Learners come to class with a wealth of knowledge. Working with learner prior knowledge (LPK) is the foundation upon which new concepts get their meaning. Yet some teachers find interacting with LPK complex. Reflecting on practice, particularly within a professional learning community (PLC), has resulted in improvements in teaching. The focus of…
