Yaseen, Zeynep; Aubusson, Peter – Research in Science Education, 2020
This article describes an investigation into teaching and learning with student-generated animations combined with a representational pedagogy. In particular, it reports on interactive discussions that were stimulated by the students' own animations as well as their critiques of experts' animations. Animations representing views of states of…

Aubusson, Peter; Panizzon, Debra; Corrigan, Deborah – Research in Science Education, 2016
Reviews of science education consistently suggest that there is (another) crisis. They express concern with the status quo and suggest directions that science education might take. In this context, science educators need to consider the current state of play, the needs of generations in a world to come and the characteristics of future science…

Watson, Kevin; Steele, Frances; Vozzo, Les; Aubusson, Peter – Research in Science Education, 2007
This paper reports the experiences of teachers involved in a novel retraining scheme designed to meet a short-term crisis in numbers of teachers of physics. Teachers trained in other subject areas underwent an intensive six-month training in physics and were then placed in schools. During the first year of teaching some support for ongoing…

Boddy, Naomi; Watson, Kevin; Aubusson, Peter – Research in Science Education, 2003
Most primary school teachers do not use constructivist teaching because they find it difficult and impractical to implement. Uses the Five Es model (Engagement, Exploration, Explanation, Elaboration and Evaluation) and results show that it is found interesting and fun by students, motivates learning, and promotes higher-order thinking skills.

Aubusson, Peter; Fogwill, Stephen; Perkovic, Linda; Barr, Rajender – Research in Science Education, 1997
Results of this study suggest that simulation-role-play allows students to demonstrate their understanding, explore their views, and develop deeper understanding of phenomena. The technique was especially beneficial to students who prefer learning kinesthetically. Suggests a strategy for using analogical analysis in simulation-role-play. Contains…
