Günter, Tugçe – Research in Science Education, 2020
This research investigated the effect of problem-based learning (PBL) for the topic of "energy metabolism" in a biochemistry course on the academic achievements of students studying in the healthcare field in a nursing department. The study had a one-group pre-test and post-test research design. The study group consisted of first-year…

Campbell, Todd; Fazio, Xavier – Research in Science Education, 2020
Set in the context of modeling-based learning (MBL), this research investigated the potential of epistemic frames as a theoretical and analytical framework for understanding teaching and learning practices used in classroom communities of practice. Epistemic frames are conceptualized as an orienting lens for a classroom community of practice that…

Prinsloo, C. H.; Harvey, J. C. – Research in Science Education, 2020
Choice of instructional language is influenced by both previous and current perceptions of the value of a given language. For many South African learners, this has contributed to their education being presented either partially or entirely in a second or third language. This effectively limits their cultural capital and educational opportunities.…

Abraham, Jessy; Barker, Katrina – Research in Science Education, 2020
It has been argued that the establishment of single-sex classes for females can increase their motivation and participation in physics. This paper reports on findings from a multi-occasional study among 90 female year 11 physics students across single-sex and co-educational high schools in Australia. The aim of this study was to identify the…

Anderson Quarderer, Nathan; McDermott, Mark A. – Research in Science Education, 2020
Developing the future scientists of tomorrow requires that the science teachers of today be well versed in the languages and practices of science. This may require in-service teachers to shift the way they think about learning and the role they play in their classrooms. One approach to helping teachers gain a sense of comfort with current science…

Kaur, Tejinder; Blair, David; Stannard, Warren; Treagust, David; Venville, Grady; Zadnik, Marjan; Mathews, Warwick; Perks, Dana – Research in Science Education, 2020
The modern Einsteinian conception of space, time, matter and radiation represents a radical paradigm shift compared with the traditional Newtonian physics that underpins most primary and secondary school science. It is increasingly recognised that school education should encompass this modern paradigm to allow a seamless progression of learning…

Krell, Moritz; Redman, Christine; Mathesius, Sabrina; Krüger, Dirk; van Driel, Jan – Research in Science Education, 2020
Scientific reasoning competencies are highlighted in science education policy papers and standard documents in various countries around the world and pre-service science teachers are asked to develop them during teacher training as part of their professional competencies. In order to monitor the development of pre-service science teachers'…

Larsson, Johanna; Airey, John; Danielsson, Anna T.; Lundqvist, Eva – Research in Science Education, 2020
This article reports the results of an empirical study exploring the discourses of physics teacher educators. We ask how the expressed understandings of a physics teacher education programme in the talk of teacher educators potentially support the identity construction of new teachers. Nine teacher educators from different sections of a physics…

Wei, Bing – Research in Science Education, 2020
This paper reports an empirical study of teacher development in the process of implementing an integrated science curriculum in a junior high school in China. Six science teachers with different subject backgrounds were invited to participate in this study. A pragmatic model of teacher learning that includes both cognitive and situated-learning…

Karpudewan, Mageswary; Chong, Tyan Yee – Research in Science Education, 2020
This study aimed at investigating the effectiveness of using Radioactivity Remote Laboratory Activities (RRLAs) in enhancing Form Four (equivalent to Grade 10) students' understanding of radioactivity and motivation to learn science. For this purpose, in this study, a repeated measures one-way ANOVA design was utilized in which 54 Form Four…

Jian, Yu-Cin – Research in Science Education, 2020
Scientific texts are often multimodal, consisting of both text and illustrations. However, previous research indicates that young readers are poor at using text-and-illustration integration strategies and at in-depth processing of scientific illustration information. This study used an experimental paradigm to teach strategies of illustration…

Yaman, Fatma – Research in Science Education, 2020
The purpose of this study was to examine "pre-service science teachers'" (PSTs) development of multiple levels of representation and written arguments using an immersive approach to argument, the "science writing heuristic," in general chemistry laboratory I and II courses. Fifty PSTs participated the study, 20 experiments were…

Bermudez, Gonzalo M. A.; Lindemann-Matthies, Petra – Research in Science Education, 2020
The definition of biodiversity stated by the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in 1992 was conceived as occurring on three different organizational levels: genetic, species, and ecosystems. However, current understanding of biodiversity includes other components, such as the number, abundance, composition, and spatial distribution of…

Johansson, Anders – Research in Science Education, 2020
Motivated by widespread concerns for representation and equity in physics education, this study investigates negotiations of identity positions of master's students in physics. The goal is to explore how sociocultural features of physics can structure the possibilities for becoming a physicist. Interviews with international master's students in…

Park, Joonhyeong; Song, Jinwoong – Research in Science Education, 2020
In the process of problem solving, intuitive thinking leads to findings that go beyond gaps and plays a decisive role in problem solving. Considering that problems often need to be solved in groups rather than by individuals, it is necessary to examine how intuitive thinking expressed by individuals is shared and elaborated among peers in a group…
