Mesci, Günkut; Çavus-Güngören, Seda; Yesildag-Hasancebi, Funda – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The purpose of this study was to examine how pre-service science teachers develop their understandings of nature of scientific inquiry during the science laboratory course with preparing 5E based lesson plans, and how they transfer those understandings into their teaching practices. All data were collected and analysed qualitatively by using the…

Massolt, Joost; Borowski, Andreas – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Pre-service physics teachers often do not recognise the relevance for their future career in their university content knowledge courses. A lower perceived relevance can, however, have a negative effect on their motivation and on their academic success. Several intervention studies have been undertaken with the goal to increase this perceived…

Fitzgerald, Angela – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
At a basic level, it makes sense to involve pre-service teachers in school-based experiences (SBE) as a way of preparing them for the teaching profession. Little is known, however, about how SBEs might prepare pre-service teachers as future teachers of particular learning areas. The purpose of this study was to explore the impacts and highlight…

Skarstein, Tuula H.; Skarstein, Frode – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study investigates early childhood (EC) student-teachers' species identification skills and their views on the importance of species knowledge. The study used a mixed methods approach, including a species identification test and a questionnaire, and involved 186 Norwegian EC student-teachers. Our results reveal that species knowledge of…

Salta, Katerina; Koulougliotis, Dionysios – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study aimed at investigating the issue of domain specificity of motivation across specific science disciplines (chemistry and physics) in combination with influencing factors related with students' academic major and gender. A clustered sampling was used to select 281 participants who were undergraduate students (105 males and 176 females)…

Lam, Dirac Sze Him; Chan, Kennedy Kam Ho – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Evidence of student thinking takes a variety of forms (e.g. verbal responses, gestures) and has varying degrees of visibility within classroom interactions. The purpose of this study was to characterise the nature of pre-service science teachers' (PSTs') noticing skills of different forms of evidence of student thinking using video-based…

Lang, Fabian; Kammerer, Yvonne; Oschatz, Kerstin; Stürmer, Kathleen; Gerjets, Peter – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Laypeople are increasingly confronted with scientific controversies, as science concerns many aspects of everyday life. In the present study, we investigated how epistemic beliefs regarding the uncertainty of knowledge (i.e. uncertainty beliefs) and invested mental effort during task processing contribute to how individuals evaluate scientific…

George-Williams, Stephen R.; Ziebell, Angela L.; Thompson, Christopher D.; Overton, Tina L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Previous work at Monash University has shown that students recognise that inquiry-, problem-, context- and industry-based experiments were better contextualised, more open to decision making and aided in the development of scientific and transferable skills. This study investigated whether these gains persisted over a longer time scale, rather…

Quinlan, Catherine L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Argumentation research often addresses the nature of argumentation as a complex set of procedures that can aid learning of complex scientific knowledge and practices. Thus, studies might look at transfer of knowledge and processes to specific science domains or to other types of procedural knowledge, such as teacher implementation in the…

Balabanoff, Morgan E.; Al Fulaiti, Haiyan; Bhusal, Shikshya; Harrold, Archer; Moon, Alena C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Light is used ubiquitously across science and engineering to explore, characterise, understand matter, and catalyse processes. Relative to its utility in science and engineering, very little research has been conducted on how students develop an understanding of light-matter interactions, especially at the quantum level, which is necessary to…

Hanson, Sandra L.; Krywult-Albanska, Malgorzata – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
A comparative gender framework and cross-national data are used to examine women's access to STEM education in Poland and cross-nationally. The transition to STEM occupations is also considered. Findings on indicators of girl's achievement in STEM education at the secondary level in Poland show gender imbalance, but Poland is doing better than…

Almukhambetova, Ainur; Kuzhabekova, Aliya – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Using the qualitative interview-based research design approach, this study analyses the experiences of female students currently enrolled in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines in the universities in Kazakhstan. More specifically, this study aimed to explore the experiences of the students in the process of…

Donaldson, Tyler; Fore, G. A.; Filippelli, Gabriel M.; Hess, J. L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Situated learning theory offers a theoretical modality for promoting a knowledge, skilled, and ethically adept future geoscience workforce. Features of situated learning pedagogies include field-based instruction and situating students within a community of practice. While there is an assumed value of such approaches, there is limited research…

Barenthien, Julia; Oppermann, Elisa; Anders, Yvonne; Steffensky, Mirjam – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Preschool teachers' science-specific competences have been shown to influence their science instruction, which in turn appear directly related to the development of children's science competences. Initial teacher education and in-service professional development may include learning opportunities to acquire science-specific competences necessary…

Saribas, Deniz; Gonca Akdemir, Zeynep – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Today's world requires citizens to make informed decisions by critically evaluating evidence and alternative explanations. The purpose of this study was to explore pre-service elementary teachers' capability of building a model--evidence link, their evaluation levels on the topic of wetlands, and their evaluations of the trustworthiness of the…
