Afitska, Oksana; Heaton, Timothy J. – Science Education, 2019
Children coming from homes where English is not their first language constitute a significant and increasing proportion of classrooms worldwide. Providing these English-language learners (ELLs) with equitable assessment opportunities is a challenge. We analyze the performance of 485 students, both English-native-speakers (ENSs) and ELLs, across…

Jamieson, Annie; Radick, Gregory – Science & Education, 2017
Twenty-first-century biology rejects genetic determinism, yet an exaggerated view of the power of genes in the making of bodies and minds remains a problem. What accounts for such tenacity? This article reports an exploratory study suggesting that the common reliance on Mendelian examples and concepts at the start of teaching in basic genetics is…

Smith, Claire F.; Finn, Gabrielle M.; Hennessy, Catherine; Luscombe, Ciara; Stewart, Jane; McHanwell, Stephen – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
"What do students studying medicine need to know" is an important question for curriculum planners, anatomy educators and students. The Core Regional Anatomy Syllabus (CRAS), published by the Anatomical Society in 2016, contains 156 learning outcomes (LOs) and has informed "what needs to be known." This project explored how…

Sentance, Sue; Waite, Jane; Kallia, Maria – Computer Science Education, 2019
Background and Context: Vygotsky's sociocultural theory emphasises the importance of language, mediation, and the transfer of skills and knowledge from the social into the cognitive plane. This perspective has influenced the development of PRIMM (Predict, Run, Investigate, Modify, Make), a structured approach to teaching programming. Objective:…

Marino, Katherine; Merrick, Deborah; Edwards, Kimberly; Pratten, Margaret – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
The United Kingdom is currently facing crisis due to a shortage of radiology consultants despite ever-increasing demand for medical imaging. The specifics of how best to teach radiology has generated increasing interest. This study aims to determine whether musculoskeletal (MSK) radiology teaching at the University of Nottingham (UoN) Medical…

Weston, Emma; Foster, Tim; Crilly, Jim; Mossop, Liz – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
Food science-based graduates are a significant proportion of the United Kingdom (UK) food and drink industry's workforce. Aside from technical standards, there is no cohesive competency framework to support key stakeholders; employers, students, and degree providers. Clarity of desirable competencies for the range of graduate opportunities…

Tang, Xing; Zhang, Danhui – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Informal science learning has been proven to have effects on a variety of science learning outcomes. This study explored the direct and indirect influence of both prior and current informal science learning on science performance by using data from the Programme for International Student Assessment 2015. More than ten kinds of informal science…

Mujtaba, Tamjid; Lawrence, Martin; Oliver, Mary; Reiss, Michael J. – Studies in Science Education, 2018
This review examines how natural history museums (NHMs) can enhance learning and engagement in science, particularly for school-age students. First, we describe the learning potential of informal science learning institutions in general, then we focus on NHMs. We review the possible benefits of interactions between schools and NHMs, and the…

Ben-David Kolikant, Yifat; ma'ayan, Ze'ev – Computer Science Education, 2018
Higher-education students now have more alternatives for searching for information than previous generations had. The Internet is a vast ocean of information sources, albeit with diverse reliability and quality. In Web 2.0 platforms, any participant can be a content creator. This reality is challenging for both the instructors and the students. We…

West, Jason – Computer Science Education, 2018
Emerging careers in technology-focused fields such as data science coupled with necessary graduate outcomes mandate the need for a truly interdisciplinary pedagogical approach. However, the rapid pace of curriculum development in this field of inquiry has meant that curricula across universities has largely evolved in line with the internal…

Falk, John H.; Dierking, Lynn D.; Osborne, Jonathan; Wenger, Matthew; Dawson, Emily; Wong, Billy – Science Education, 2015
Increasing evidence suggests that individuals develop their understanding of science concepts in and out of school, using varied community resources and networks. Thus in contrast to historic research approaches that focus exclusively on single organizations and/or educational events, the current paper presents exploratory research in which we…

Rushton, Elizabeth A. C.; Reiss, Michael J. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
We explore the professional identities of UK-based secondary science teachers who actively participated in science research for at least six months. The study uses thematic analysis to analyse semi-structured interviews with 17 participants across England and Scotland, from a variety of educational/socio-economic contexts. We found that through…

Fishbain, Dana; Danon, Yehuda L.; Nissanholz-Gannot, Rachel – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2019
There is a widespread consensus about the need for accreditation systems for evaluating post-graduate medical education programs, but accreditation systems differ substantially across countries. A cross-country comparison of accreditation systems could provide valuable input into policy development processes. We reviewed the accreditation systems…
