The ASE Guide to Research in Science Education
For professionals who want to understand the research that informs the development of science teaching. Editor: John Oversby.
This completely new book gives easy access to research that has informed classroom practice and provides support for those wishing to conduct their own research. The writers of this book firstly review robust and reliable research evidence, topic by topic, that informs the development of science teaching and will help teachers make decisions about the learning experience they offer to their students.
Free places for New Science Ed Tutors!
There are free places for new science education tutors. Funding is available (to cover conference costs and accommodation, but NOT travel to the conference), to new appointees from the past year who have not been to an ATSE Conference previously.
Places are limited - please contact Faarhana Zaman above together with details of institution, appointment and date. If you have new tutors joining you, please encourage them to attend!
Evaluation of the conference by the new tutors who attended last year at Cumbria, and previous years, can be read in the forum (you need to register/log-in to the ASE website to read and participate in the forum):
