This book takes stock of where we are in science education
research, and considers where we ought now to be going. It explores
how and whether the research effort in science education has
contributed to improvements in the practice of teaching science and
the science curriculum. It contains contributions from an
international group of science educators. Each chapter explores a
specific area of research in science education, considering why
this research is worth doing, and its potential for development.
Together they look candidly at important general issues such as the
impact of research on classroom practice and the development of
science education as a progressive field of research. The book was
produced in celebration of the work of the late Rosalind Driver.
All the principal contributors to the book had professional links
with her, and the three sections of the book focus on issues that
were of central importance in her work: research on teaching and
learning in science; the role of science within the school
curriculum and the nature of the science education we ought to be
providing for young people; and the achievements of, and future
agenda for, research in science education.
