Liu, Qin; Reeve, Doug; Rottmann, Cindy; Moore, Emily – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Co-ops and internships complement students' classroom learning and constitute important contributors to the quality of engineering education. In light of Stephen Billett's affordance-engagement framework, we reviewed 30 selected empirical studies on undergraduate engineering students' co-op and internship experiences. From these studies, we…

Seniuk Cicek, Jillian; Paul, Robyn; Sheridan, Patricia K.; Kuley, Liz – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Four graduate students from four distinct Canadian institutions engaged in collaborative autoethnography to explore their dual roles as participant-researchers investigating the lived experience of graduate students studying engineering education research (EER) in Canada. Findings, oriented through the identity-trajectory framework, indicate that…

Rottmann, Cindy; Reeve, Douglas – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Case studies have been used by engineering ethics educators for several decades, following a path paved by legal educators in the late nineteenth century. Unfortunately, few of these cases connect the micro-ethical decisions of individual engineers with the macro-ethical consequences of their actions, leaving intact a long-standing division…

Evagorou, Maria; Nicolaou, Christiana; Lymbouridou, Chrystalla – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Argumentation and modelling are core scientific practices, and studies suggest that incorporating the specific practices in the teaching of science can engage learners. This is a qualitative study of a classroom of 10-12-year-old students working collaboratively in argumentation and modelling. The aim of the study was to explore how primary school…

Sheldrake, Richard; Mujtaba, Tamjid – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Science-related careers are often considered to be less accessible by many children. More research is needed to distinguish any influences from different aspects of life so that support and/or interventions can be focused to help mitigate any disadvantage and inaccessibility. In order to gain greater understanding of constraints or influences on…

Klassen, Mike; Donald, John – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
This paper analyzes the curriculum of engineering leadership offerings in Canadian universities. We operationalize an adapted version of Lattuca and Stark's (2011) academic plan framework to analyze key documents of engineering leadership offerings embedded in the engineering curriculum in six different universities. In the process, we generate…

Holm, Jennifer; Kajander, Ann – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Some views of elementary teacher preparation may include the idea that undergraduate mathematics courses are useful or even crucial for prospective teachers to have. This study sought to identify teacher candidates with mathematics degrees, in order to study their mathematical preparation. The identified prospective teachers were studied to…

Hufnagel, Elizabeth – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
Since most emotional regulation research is about teachers regulating their own emotions, this study sought to examine how teachers view emotions and respond to their students' emotions. Drawing from an interactional view of emotions and emotion regulation, five science teachers were interviewed for 60-75 minutes about the emotions experienced by…

Goodnough, Karen; Azam, Saiqa; Wells, Patrick – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
In this case study, the authors collaborated with two grade 4 teachers, who participated in a large-scale professional learning program focused on helping K-9 teachers enhance their classroom practice and confidence in teaching science through inquiry-based learning. The specific research questions that guided the study were the following: (a) How…

Lindsay, Sally; Kolne, Kendall; Oh, Anna; Cagliostro, Elaine – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
Children with disabilities encounter many barriers in engaging in science, math, and technology courses such as discriminatory attitudes and inaccessible classes, which can limit their educational and future employment opportunities. Helping children to foster an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines early on…

Slomka, Jessica M. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
Scientific problems of the twenty-first century involve complex research questions that require an interdisciplinary approach. Educational research suggests that overall student achievement is greater in an interdisciplinary science curriculum than in a discipline-specific science curriculum. Regardless, the secondary school science curriculum in…

Khan, Samia; Krell, Moritz – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
In this study, we analysed the scientific reasoning competencies of preservice science teachers from a Canadian sample at the beginning and end of a science teacher education methods course. The course contained standard topics, such as the nature of science, assessment, and unit and lesson planning in science. The preservice science teachers were…

Voutsina, Chronoula – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
Existing research suggests that young children can develop a partial understanding of the equal sign as an operator rather than as a relational symbol of equivalence. This partial understanding can be the result of overemphasis on canonical equation syntaxes of the type a + b = c in elementary school mathematics. This paper presents an examination…

Coles, Alf; Sinclair, Nathalie – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
In this article, we question the prevalent assumption that teaching and learning mathematics should always entail movement from the concrete to the abstract. Such a view leads to reported difficulties in students moving from manipulatives and models to more symbolic work, moves that many students never make, with all the implications this has for…

Zhang, Lin; Li, Zhushan – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
The present study examined to what extent inquiry-based investigation as an instructional approach associated with students' overall science achievement and achievement in cognitive domains, including knowing science facts, applying scientific principles, and reasoning with scientific concepts to solve problems. Using TIMSS 2007 science…
