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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Wheeler, Lindsay B.; Mulvey, Bridget K.; Maeng, Jennifer L.; Librea-Carden, Mila Rosa; Bell, Randy L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Graduate students regularly teach undergraduate STEM courses and can positively impact students' understanding of science. Yet little research examines graduate students' knowledge about nature of science (NOS) or instructional strategies for teaching graduate students about NOS. This exploratory study sought to understand how a 1-credit Teaching…

Jonsson, Anders; Leden, Lotta – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Tests convey messages about what to teach and how to assess. Both of these dimensions may either broaden or become more uniform and narrow as a consequence of high-stakes testing. This study aimed to investigate how Swedish science teachers were influenced by national, high-stakes testing in science, specifically focusing on instances where…

Jones, M. Gail; Lee, Tammy; Chesnutt, Katherine; Carrier, Sarah; Ennes, Megan; Cayton, Emily; Madden, Lauren; Huff, Pamela – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Although there has been some success with programmes that aim to increase STEM involvement by women and underserved minorities, science educators continue to seek ways to promote students' interest in STEM. This study builds on social cognitive career theory (SCCT) and the theory of enclothed cognition to assess the impact of wearing lab coats on…

Bartels, Hauke; Geelan, David; Kulgemeyer, Christoph – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Measuring teachers' skills to carry out the complex tasks required in teaching is an important means of evaluating the effectiveness of teacher education but remains a challenging activity to conduct in practice. It is necessary to optimise approaches for usability and effectiveness along a continuum from low-effort and low-authenticity measures…

Kind, Vanessa – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This paper offers pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) rubrics, that is, guides providing criteria for grading that are potentially applicable to a range of science topics and levels of teacher experience. Grading criteria applied in the rubrics are based on qualitative analyses of planned topic-specific professional knowledge (TSPK) and content…

Liepertz, Sven; Borowski, Andreas – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The structure and definition of professional knowledge is a continuing focus of science education research. In 2012, a pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) summit was held and it suggested a model of professional knowledge and skill including PCK, which was later often called the Consensus Model (Gess-Newsome, 2015. A model of teacher professional…

Neumann, Knut; Kind, Vanessa; Harms, Ute – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This Special Issue aims to present evidence about the relationships between content knowledge (CK), pedagogical knowledge (PK) and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK); the development of these types of knowledge in novice and experienced secondary science teachers; and how CK, PK and/or PCK impact students' learning. Since Shulman's introduction…

Kind, Vanessa; Chan, Kennedy K. H. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This paper concludes the Special Issue (SI) 'Probing the Amalgam: the relationship between science teachers' content, pedagogical and pedagogical content knowledge'. We review the five papers (Sorge et al; Gess-Newsome et al; Kind; Pitjeng-Mosabala and Rollnick; and Liepertz and Bronowski) by discussing evidence these present regarding the…

Ryu, Minjung – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Bilingual and multilingual speakers mix two or more languages for communication, gaining information and sense-making in varieties of contexts. How do bilinguals mix languages and what does the mixing afford for their learning and participation? This study examines these questions, focusing on Korean-English bilingual youths in a community-based…
