  • About this book

  • Combines theoretical perspectives and innovative research based applications
  • Presents and explores important up to date research on the development of Teaching Learning Sequences
  • Discusses important design issues like iterative refinement and researcher teacher collaborative designs
  • Investigates and discusses important aspects of inquiry teaching and learning
  • Suggests evidence based pedagogical treatments of Material Science
This book includes a series of theoretical papers highlighting specific aspects of the participative design of teaching modules for Materials Science as well as a set of Case Studies on the development and iterative evolution of six modules about innovative approaches to introducing various aspects of Materials Science in school. The combined collaborative efforts of experienced science education researchers and science teachers draw on important features of Materials Science from a disciplinary perspective and argue why it is valuable and stimulating for students to devote learning time to properties of materials and their applications. In short the authors illustrate important theoretical issues as well as aspects of design, iterative evolution of a series of Teaching-Learning Sequences (TLS) on an innovative socially and scientifically important topic and elaborate on the design, refinement and validation of TLS as a mechanism for bridging research to practice.
