Evagorou, Maria; Dillon, Justin; Viiri, Jouni; Albe, Virginie – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2015
A number of reports recently identify that the quality of science education in a number of European countries is lower than expected. One of the reasons for the apparent underachievement in this generally economically prosperous continent might be a pedagogy of science that lacks variety, or a pedagogy that is less engaging than other subjects.…
