Global Education Trend-How to implement STEM Education
New Directions in Teaching Science
Speaker: Prof. Jonathan Osborne, Stanford University
Date: 20 June 2016
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are currently implemented in 16 states in the US to promote STEM education. These standards represent a change from teaching science core ideas with a focus on inquiry, to a focus on scientific practices where argumentation is a core feature. The seminar will explore the rationale for this change, why it is seen as an improvement, and the implications for science teaching.
