EDU 519 Trends & Issues in Science Education

Department: Master of Education

Module Description: This module aims to provide students with an overview of major trends and issues of research in science teaching and learning at K-12 schools and college levels. The module assists students to critically acknowledge and analyze readings and interpret data related to science education issues relevant not only at the school and college levels, but also at the policy making level. A major focus is to develop understanding of a range of different types of research studies and research methods in science education, and to draw examples of implications from them for teaching, learning and policy making. One of the main outcome of the module, students are expected to develop a framework to appropriately examine research in science education based on their own explanations of curriculum and instruction foci at school, zone, national or regional levels.
