Science Education

The division of Science Education is involved in research on science education at all levels of the educational system as well as in society at large.

Of central importance is research on curriculum and classroom interactions. Analyses are used to model interactions conceptually in ways that can support teachers' decisions regarding content and methods. Research spans from studies of education for sustainable development in preschool and public education at museums to studies of teacher change, selective traditions in school, and science learning in multilingual school settings.
