Zhang, Danhui; Bobis, Janette; Wu, Xiaolu; Cui, Yiran – Research in Science Education, 2020
Increasing student exposure to autonomy-supportive teaching approaches has been linked to enhanced student intrinsic motivation to learn. However, such approaches are rare in mainland Chinese science classrooms. An intervention-based study with quasi-experimental design and mixed methods was conducted to explore the impact of a 9-month-long…

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…

Olitsky, Stacy; Becker, Elizabeth A.; Jayo, Ignacio; Vinogradov, Philip; Montcalmo, Joseph – Research in Science Education, 2020
This study explores the implications of a redesign of a college course that entailed a new partnership between a college neuroscience classroom and a high school. In this course, the college students engaged in original research projects which included conducting brain surgery and behavioural tests on rats. They used digital storytelling and…

Kuo, Yen-Ruey; Tuan, Hsiao-Lin; Chin, Chi-Chin – Research in Science Education, 2020
This study aims to examine the influence of inquiry-based instruction on eighth-grade male and female students' motivation and engagement in science learning in two public junior high schools in central Taiwan. Mixed-methods methodology was adopted with 60 students (32 males and 28 females) in the experimental group and 56 students (28 males and…

Cian, Heidi; Cook, Michelle – Research in Science Education, 2020
Student teachers struggle to identify themselves as teachers in their field placement during their student teaching year, and some of the difficulty can be attributed to the change they encounter when they must communicate scientific ideas to students in a language that differs from how they recently learned science at the university level. Using…

Soysal, Y. – Research in Science Education, 2020
This study identified the accumulated distributions of the enacted discursive moves during classroom inquiry to demonstrate how a science teacher reacted to the existence of two mutually exclusive social languages: everyday social languages of the students vs. social languages of school science. The participants were a science teacher and 26…

Mills, Reece; Tomas, Louisa; Whiteford, Chrystal; Lewthwaite, Brian – Research in Science Education, 2020
Given that interest is associated with learning in educational research, understanding how its development can be supported in different learning contexts represents an important line of inquiry. In this study, we investigate the influence of the slowmation construction process on middle school students' interest in learning science and geology.…

Ferreira, Sílvia; Morais, Ana M. – Research in Science Education, 2020
The study investigates differentiated teaching practices of practical work in distinct social contexts and with different experienced teachers, at the level of the Portuguese high school science education. Four teaching practices were analysed in terms of the level of complexity of both scientific knowledge and cognitive skills and in terms of…

Du Plessis, Anna E. – Research in Science Education, 2020
Strategising quality teaching in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) domains turns focus to teachers' capacity to teach these subjects (UWIRE Text 2017) when they are not suitably qualified in them. Against the backdrop of research that claims that 75% of the fastest growing occupations will require STEM skills, this…

Derman, Aysegül; Ebenezer, Jazlin – Research in Science Education, 2020
The purpose of this study was to describe the effect of multiple knowledge representations of physical and chemical changes on the development of primary pre-service teachers' cognitive structures. The study took place in an introductory general chemistry laboratory course in a four-year teacher education program. Multiple knowledge…

Murphy, Steve – Research in Science Education, 2020
Science and science education are recognised internationally as essential for ensuring a sustainable and prosperous future. At the same time, significant equity issues are apparent in science education. This study used enrolment and academic result data, routinely collected from government schools in Victoria, Australia, to examine the impact of…

Bopardikar, Anushree; Bernstein, Debra; Drayton, Brian; McKenney, Susan – Research in Science Education, 2020
Around the globe, science education during compulsory schooling is envisioned for all learners regardless of their educational and career aspirations, including learners bound to the workforce upon secondary school completion. Yet, a major barrier in attaining this vision is low learner participation in secondary school science. Because curricula…

Archila, Pablo Antonio; Molina, Jorge – Research in Science Education, 2020
The theory of evolution is the backbone of the biological sciences. Arguably, this is the reason why evolution education is an extensively investigated issue in several countries around the world. Little is known, however, about the views of university students in Colombia. Here, we report on 7 years of data generated by a three-question anonymous…

Carrier, Sarah J.; Whitehead, Ashley N.; Minogue, James; Corsi-Kimble, Becca S. – Research in Science Education, 2020
Theories of how people learn and how science connects to students' lives provide frameworks for exploring the development of teachers' visions of effective science teaching. These frameworks can inform elementary teacher preparation programs about how to communicate theory-based practices of effective science instruction to support pre-service…

Byrne, Zinta S.; Weston, James W.; Cave, Kelly – Research in Science Education, 2020
Employers lament that science graduates, particularly engineering students, lack professional skills, despite increasing emphasis on teaching professional skills in their curriculum. Using the Theory of Planned Behavior as an overarching framework, one explanation for skill development gaps may be students' attitude towards learning professional…
