Google, Angela N.; Gardner, Grant; Grinath, Anna S. – Studies in Science Education, 2023
For decades, biology education researchers have made efforts towards engaging undergraduate students in the process of science and assisting students in their development of deep approaches to learning in the field. Research indicates that students who adopt deep approaches or study strategies make meaningful connections with course material and…

Sjøberg, Svein; Jenkins, Edgar – Studies in Science Education, 2022
PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) is one of two large scale international comparative projects of student assessment that now exert considerable influence upon school science education policy, the other being TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study). This paper focuses on PISA, now the most influential…

Peart, Daniel J. – Studies in Science Education, 2022
Science and drawing have been paired for hundreds of years, and this synergy is still prevalent in research investigating the role of drawing for developing and assessing understanding. However, despite research at the primary and secondary levels of education, there is limited research on whether drawing facilitates learning at the undergraduate…

Sommeillier, Raoul; Quinlan, Kathleen M.; Robert, Frédéric – Studies in Science Education, 2021
We propose a new instructional theory, the Domain of Validity (DoV) Framework, which offers a new way forward for designing teaching for conceptual change, while also resolving conflicts between existing theories related to common, difficult-to-change conceptions students have about particular scientific topics. We propose that knowledge consists…

Rüschenpöhler, Lilith; Markic, Silvija – Studies in Science Education, 2019
This article gives an overview of the current state of science and technology self-concept research. Following a defined selection process, we analysed 74 peer-reviewed journal articles published from 1998 to 2017, which are indexed in the ERIC database and that deal with science and technology self-concepts (STSC) of school children and…

Jack, Brady Michael; Lin, Huann-shyang – Studies in Science Education, 2017
Generations of students are graduating from secondary school disinterested in post-secondary study of science or pursuing careers in science-related fields beyond formal education. We propose that destabilising such disinterest among future students requires science educators to begin listening to secondary school students regarding their views of…

Stern, Florian; Kampourakis, Kostas – Studies in Science Education, 2017
Research in genetics and genomics is advancing at a fast pace, and thus keeping up with the most recent findings and conclusions can be very challenging. At the same time these recent findings and conclusions have made necessary a reconceptualization of genes and heredity, both in science and in science education, beyond the mostly gene-centred…

Cheng, May Hung May; Wan, Zhi Hong – Studies in Science Education, 2016
Chinese students' excellent science performance in large-scale international comparisons contradicts the stereotype of the Chinese non-productive classroom learning environment and learners. Most of the existing explanations of this paradox are provided from the perspective of teaching and learning in a general sense, but little work can be found…

Martinez-Garza, Mario; Clark, Douglas B.; Nelson, Brian C. – Studies in Science Education, 2013
This review synthesises research on digital games and science learning as it supports the goals for science proficiency outlined in the report by the US National Research Council on science education reform. The review is organised in terms of these research-based goals for science proficiency in light of their alignment with current science…

Chin, Christine; Osborne, Jonathan – Studies in Science Education, 2008
Students' questions play an important role in meaningful learning and scientific inquiry. They are a potential resource for both teaching and learning science. Despite the capacity of students' questions for enhancing learning, much of this potential still remains untapped. The purpose of this paper, therefore, is to examine and review the…

Jenkins, Edgar W. – Studies in Science Education, 2006
More recent work has complemented earlier studies of the "student voice" in science education by redirecting research attention to focus more directly on what students think about the form, content and purpose of their school science education and exploring the curriculum and pedagogical implications of the findings. Researchers have…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Studies in Science Education, 2005
The purpose of this paper is to organize and critique the theoretical work done so far on the "relation between the cognitive and the emotional in science learning" and suggest possible directions for research that takes into consideration this relation. In light of the enduring negative effect of much school science on students' emotional…

Maddock, M. N. – Studies in Science Education, 1981
Draws on literature from the fields of science education, anthropology, and other areas. Proposes a viewpoint that science and science education are cultural enterprises which form a part of the wider cultural matrix of society and that educational considerations concerning science must be made in light of this wider perspective.

Barton, Angela Calabrese – Studies in Science Education, 2002
Identifies what "urban science education studies" means and reviews 46 articles representing the nature of urban science education based on the questions asked, research frameworks, guiding assumptions, and findings. Discusses educational equity and challenges regarding policy and enactments, goals of school science, and what to teach in…
