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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Lally, Diane; Forbes, Cory – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Introductory undergraduate courses present an opportunity to use disciplinary concepts in solving authentic problems. Making complex natural systems accessible to students through computer-based models allows them to practice making evidence-based predictions and communicate understanding. Despite the importance of modelling tools in formal…

Herranen, Jaana; Kousa, Päivi; Fooladi, Erik; Aksela, Maija – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The aim of this study is to provide an understanding of context-based inquiry teaching within a humanistic perspective on science education by studying pre-service teachers' beliefs about inquiry and their implementations of inquiry in their context-based teaching sequences. Therefore, five pre-service teachers enrolled in a university…

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…

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…

Sorge, Stefan; Kröger, Jochen; Petersen, Stefan; Neumann, Knut – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Teachers' professional knowledge is considered one of the most important predictors of instructional quality. According to Shulman, such professional knowledge includes content, pedagogical content and pedagogical knowledge. Although recent research shed some light on the structure of the dimensions of professional knowledge, little is known how…

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…
