Wegner, Claas; Janzen, Nadeshda; Zehne, Carolin – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
With decreasing numbers of students pursuing a career in science (OECD, 2008), the call for educational reforms building a basis for an interest in science is great. Cooperation between schools and universities are an important aspect of these reforms, as they aim at sparking an interest in science (Robert Bosch Foundation, 2005). The Ministry of…

Lindahl, Mats Gunnar; Linder, Cedric – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
The conflicts between nature and nurture are brought to the fore and challenges socio-scientific decision-making in science education. The multitude of meanings of these concepts and their roles in societal discourses can impede students' development of understanding for different perspectives, e.g. on gene technology. This study problematizes…
