Langfield, Danielle – Journal of Political Science Education, 2016
The use of a real-world case in a classroom simulation--in contrast to invented or disguised cases--is not widely recognized as a "combination" of two common active-learning strategies in political science: teaching with a case study and conducting a simulation. I argue that using such a simulation therefore can provide the benefits of…

Tayob, Abdulkader – Education Sciences, 2018
Scholars of Religion Education (RE) have promoted a non-confessional approach to the teaching of religions that explores and examines the religious history of humankind, with due attention paid to its complexity and plurality. In this promotion, the public representation of religion and its impact on RE has not received sufficient attention. An…

Kotze, Sanet Henriet; Mole, Calvin Gerald; Greyling, Linda Magdalena – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2012
It has been noted by staff at the Faculty of Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University that medical students neglect the study of surface anatomy during dissection. This study reports on the novel use of Lodox[R] Statscan[R] images in anatomical education, particularly the teaching of surface anatomy. Full body digital X-ray images (Lodox Statscan)…

Easton, Peter B. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2011
In this response to Hewson and Ogunniyi's paper on indigenous knowledge (IK) and science teaching in South Africa, I seek to broaden the debate by setting the enterprise of integrating IK into science education in its cultural and socio-political context. I begin by exploring the multiple meanings of indigenous knowledge in Africa, next consider…

Dempster, Edith R.; Reddy, Vijay – Science Education, 2007
This study investigated the relationship between readability of 73 text-only multiple-choice questions from Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2003 and performance of two groups of South African learners: those with limited English-language proficiency (learners attending African schools) and those with better…

Downs, Colleen Thelma – International Journal of Science Education, 2010
A life sciences undergraduate apprenticeship initiative was run during the vacations at a South African university. In particular, the initiative aimed to increase the number of students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Annually 12-18 undergraduate biology students were apprenticed to various institutions during the January and July vacations from…

Green, Whitfield; Naidoo, Devika – Science Education International, 2008
The post-apartheid National Physical Science Curriculum was implemented for the first time in South Africa in grade 10 during 2006. A variety of new textbooks for grade 10 have been published. This study was a comparative analysis of three popular textbooks, one prepared to support the previous curriculum, and two prepared for the new curriculum.…

Burch, V. C.; Norman, G. R.; Schmidt, H. G.; van der Vleuten, C. P. M. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2008
High stakes postgraduate specialist certification examinations have considerable implications for the future careers of examinees. Medical colleges and professional boards have a social and professional responsibility to ensure their fitness for purpose. To date there is a paucity of published data about the reliability of specialist certification…

Laugksch, Rudiger C. – Science Education, 2005
This analysis of research conducted by graduate students at South African universities over the last 70 years is an attempt to identify the foci of South African science education research. Appropriate graduate degrees were systematically identified by interrogating electronic databases and verifying details. Title and abstract were then used to…

Burch, V. C.; Sikakana, C. N. T.; Yeld, N.; Seggie, J. L.; Schmidt, H. G. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2007
Introduction: Racially segregated schooling, a legacy of Apartheid policies, continues to hamper education in South Africa. Students entering university from suboptimal circumstances are at significant risk of demonstrating poor academic performance and dropping out of their programmes. Attempts to address the educational needs of these students…

Ogunniyi, M. B. – International Journal of Science Education, 2007
The new South African curriculum known as Curriculum 2005 (to depict the year of its full implementation) requires that teachers integrate school science with Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IKS). Curriculum 2005 has generated heated debates at various levels since its inception in 1997. This study focuses on the effectiveness or otherwise of a…

Muwanga-Zake, Johnnie Wycliffe Frank – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2007
I report on benefits from 26 teacher-participant evaluators of a computer game designed to motivate learning and to ease conceptual understanding of biology in South Africa. Using a developmental, social constructivist and interpretative model, the recommendation is to include the value systems and needs of end-users (through social dialogue);…

Lelliott, Anthony – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2014
The notion of scientific literacy is contested terrain, particularly when the term is used in school curricula. Using a scientific literacy framework of Vision I (covers science products and processes) and Vision II (based on science-related situations as a starting point for discussion), the article analyses the Natural Science (grades 7-9)…

Brodie, Karin; Sanni, Rasheed – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2014
Much of the work on teacher knowledge suggests that content knowledge shapes pedagogical content knowledge, and in fact is primary in the relationship between the two forms of knowledge. In this paper we challenge this view, arguing from a situated perspective on knowledge and learning, that pedagogical content knowledge strongly shapes content…

Marshall, Delia; Linder, Cedric – International Journal of Science Education, 2005
This article reports on a phenomenographic-based study of the expectations of teaching among undergraduate physics students. Data are drawn from a range of course-contexts at each of two quite different universities--one South African and one Swedish--and five qualitatively different expectations of physics teaching are identified and exemplified.…
