Koster, Edwin; de Regt, Henk W. – Science & Education, 2020
While a conception of science as value free has been dominant since Max Weber defended it in the nineteenth century, recent years have witnessed an emerging consensus that science is not -- and cannot be -- completely free of values. Which values may legitimately influence science, and in which ways, is currently a topic of heated debate in…

Alcantara, Marlon C.; Braga, Marco; van den Heuvel, Charles – Science & Education, 2020
This paper discusses the potential of the creation and analysis of historical networks as didactic strategies in science education. To this end, we first argue the importance of combining critical approaches of the history of science with historical network research. This will be followed by a report of an empirical experiment in which the history…

Zidny, Robby; Sjöström, Jesper; Eilks, Ingo – Science & Education, 2020
Indigenous knowledge provides specific views of the world held by various indigenous peoples. It offers different views on nature and science that generally differ from traditional Western science. Futhermore, it introduces different perspectives on nature and the human in nature. Coming basically from a Western perspective on nature and science,…

Kahlke, Renate M.; McConnell, Meghan M.; Wisener, Katherine M.; Eva, Kevin W. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2020
Safe and effective healthcare requires that new knowledge or skills, once learned, are incorporated into professional practice. However, this process is not always straightforward. Learning takes place in complex contexts, requiring practitioners to overcome various motivational, systemic, emotional, and social barriers to the application of…

Marineau, Josiah Franklin – Journal of Political Science Education, 2020
Political science majors are down nation-wide as a proportion of all degrees and as a proportion of social science degrees. To explain to undergraduate students why they ought to major in political science, we should emphasize what they can do with the degree rather than reflecting from our own past experience or the wide range of careers one can…

Litfin, Karen T. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2020
A quiet revolution is unfolding throughout higher education in the form of contemplative pedagogical practices. The mind's ability to adopt a metaposition relative to its own contents, thereby consciously integrating somatic, emotional, and mental experience, has profound implications for learning. According to its proponents, contemplative…

Biswas, Bidisha; Haufler, Virginia – Journal of Political Science Education, 2020
Critics contend that current college graduates lack necessary skills for the workplace. What are the aptitudes that employers seek? How can classroom instruction and assessment help develop these capacities, particularly in an international relations class? Numerous surveys of employers indicate they value cross-cutting "soft"…

McClellan, E. Fletcher – Journal of Political Science Education, 2020
Horror stories abound of colleges closed, faculty laid off, and liberal arts programs terminated. Families express concern about costs, students worry about debt, and society appears skeptical about whether a college education is worth it. In many of these reports, colleges and universities are to blame for their own failures. Academic programs…

Rittinger, Eric R. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2020
A growing literature highlights the benefits of playing the classic board game Diplomacy in international relations (IR) courses. But how exactly can it help students to learn not only about different IR theories, but also about what it means to "use" a theory in the first place? To address this question, I highlight my experiences…

Bortz, Whitney Wall; Gautam, Aakash; Tatar, Deborah; Lipscomb, Kemper – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Integrating computational thinking (CT) and science education is complex, and assessing the resulting learning gains even more so. Arguments that assessment should match the learning (Biggs, "Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education," 21(1), 5-16. 1996; Airasian and Miranda, "Theory into Practice," 41(4), 249-254. 2002;…

Andrà, Chiara; Brunetto, Domenico; Parolini, Nicola; Verani, Marco – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This paper aims at contributing to the debate in Mathematics Education about the understanding of the dynamics of students' group interactions by proposing an interpretative lens, which defines four modes of participating in a group on the basis of different kinds of utterances, gestures, postures, and glances that each student makes. We apply…
