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…
