Saribas, Deniz; Gonca Akdemir, Zeynep – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Today's world requires citizens to make informed decisions by critically evaluating evidence and alternative explanations. The purpose of this study was to explore pre-service elementary teachers' capability of building a model--evidence link, their evaluation levels on the topic of wetlands, and their evaluations of the trustworthiness of the…

Todd, Brandy L.; Zvoch, Keith – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study investigates the impact of an informal science outreach programme built around theories of identity formation and self-efficacy on middle school girls' science affinities. A lottery-based, randomised control trial was used to identify programme effects on four science affinity outcomes: science interests, efficacy with science, science…

Meyerhöffer, Nina; Dreesmann, Daniel C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The dominant role of English as the global language of science entails a requirement for science teachers to equip their non-native English-speaking students with receptive and productive language skills for communication in scientific contexts. Although science courses with English elements are part of some schools' bilingual programmes, they are…

Kaya, Ebru; Erduran, Sibel; Aksoz, Busra; Akgun, Selin – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
A recent framework on nature of science (NOS) is the Family Resemblance Approach (FRA). FRA presents NOS as a cognitive-epistemic and social-institutional system with a set of categories: aims and values, scientific methods, scientific practices, scientific knowledge and social-institutional aspects of science. Although FRA has been problematised…

Kang, Jingoo; Hense, Jonathan; Scheersoi, Annette; Keinonen, Tuula – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Gender disparities in STEM fields have been under extensive study, the focus of which has been on future career aspirations. However, the primary phases in gender differences are still ambiguous when examined from this perspective, possibly due to the fact that most of the studies have targeted samples of upper secondary school or college…

Loveys, Beth R.; Riggs, Karina M. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The flipped classroom pedagogy was implemented in two core undergraduate science courses; Animal and Plant Biochemistry II (APB) and Microbiology and Invertebrate Biology II (MIB) to encourage students to prepare for laboratory classes. Students often attend class without little understanding or appreciation of what they are going to learn in the…

Gamberi, Chiara; Hall, Katharine – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The design and implementation of a scientific writing assignment in a >100 student upper-level undergraduate microbiology class resulted in a peer-reviewed publication in an open-access journal. The primary course objectives and requirements were met by assigning groups of four to five students one of 25 distinct section topics of similar size…

Öberg, Gunilla; Campbell, Alice – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
There is an urgent need to strengthen undergraduate science students' epistemic knowledge, which requires having the scientists "qua" teachers on board. The divide between scientists' perceptions of science and the perceptions held by those who study science is in this context problematic. Even so, this remains a sorely understudied…

Lavi, Rea; Dori, Yehudit Judy – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Systems thinking is an important skill in science and engineering education. Our study objectives were (1) to create the basis for a systems thinking language common to both science education and engineering education, and (2) to apply this language to assess science and engineering teachers' systems thinking. We administered two assignments to…

Postigo, Yolanda; López-Manjón, Asunción – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This paper analyses the extent to which textbook images are designed using the Instructional Criteria for Image Analysis (ICIA) model in textbooks. The ICIA proposed that learning through images involves interaction between the learner, the image, and the activities with images proposed to the student. Images from the main text and activity…

van den Hurk, Anniek; Meelissen, Martina; van Langen, Annemarie – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The so-called leaking STEM pipeline (dropout in STEM education) has been the subject of many studies. The large interest of scholars in plausible causes of this leakage has resulted in a number of meta-reviews describing factors at system, school and student level related to interest and persistence in STEM education. The STEM pipeline discussion…

Peacock, Jeremy; Melville, Wayne – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Working from a historical perspective indicates that there are four periods over the last 170 years through which the role of the science chair has developed. This evolution has progressed from the administrative need to implement the agenda of the newly professionalised science of the nineteenth century, to a greater emphasis on the role of the…

Lachapelle, Cathy P.; Cunningham, Christine M.; Oh, Yoonkyung – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Technology is important to all aspects of our lives, so helping students develop an accurate understanding of technology should be an educational goal at the K-12 level. Assessments are important tools in reaching this goal. We developed an instrument to measure the technology conceptions of children ages 8-11, the 'What is Technology' (WT)…

Liu, Qing-Tang; Liu, Bo-Wei; Lin, Yu-Ren – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The present study investigated the influence of two factors, namely, argumentation approach and students' prior knowledge on the learning of scientific concept and argumentation in descriptive and theoretical scientific concept-based topics. Four 7th grade science classes totalling 138 students participated and were assigned to four groups…

Kranzfelder, Petra; Lo, Alexander T.; Melloy, Marin P.; Walker, Lindsey E.; Warfa, Abdi-Rizak M. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Theoretically, organisational culture, instructor training, and learning space design influence how faculty teach STEM courses. Previous studies have used classroom observation protocols to characterise the range of teaching practices in mostly teacher-centered, traditional STEM classrooms. In this study, we examined the classroom behaviour of 13…
