Student Centered Learning in Science Education

Introducing Student Centered Learning to Faculties in Turkey

proposal
Proposal
  • A pilot study will target faculty members in science education department to introduce and implement the student centered learning theory.
rationale
Rationale
  • Creativity in building understanding and knowledge
  • Develop interest in science
  • Understanding of the theory and robust research’s results.
  • Movement from traditional teaching to constructivist teaching environment.
literature
Literature
  • Constructivism is a theory of learning which includes the major bodies of research on student misconceptions or alternative frameworks (Shymansky et al., 1993).
  • Common to constructivist teaching strategies is the belief that the student creates his/her own knowledge. This is not a controversial stance and most educators agree with this idea (Good et al., 1993).
  • The teacher does not assume the traditional role of being the expert, telling students what it is they need to know. Instead, the teacher acts as a guide or a facilitator (Shymansky, 1994).
  • Constructivist recognize the role of assimilation, accommodation and disequilibrium but place greater emphasis on the role of prior context-specific knowledge (Shymansky, Henriques, Chidsey, Dunkhase, Jorgensen, and Yore ,1993)
concerns
Short Term

Develop conceptual understanding

Enhance interest in science

Assessment/Evaluation of pilot study

Integration of participants like science professors, undergraduate students, and designers

Faculty appreciation of the new concept.

Long term

Changes in pre-service teacher education

Nationwide movement from traditional to constructivist teaching for universities.

Concerns
analysis of proposal
Analysis of Proposal
  • Surveys/interviews of participants with regard to science, attitudes towards technology
  • CBAM, CREATER models
  • Cost analysis
  • Time frame
  • Educational grants
  • Long term discussions and research analysis with participants.
acquire
Acquire
  • Collaborate between departments
  • Quality control
  • Alternative framework for participants.
  • Dissatisfaction with the system has been using.
  • More focus on learner.

Wheel of Change (TRY)
  • Application to class lectures
  • Continual mentoring process
  • JIT (Just In Time) management of minor variations/concerns that arise

Wheel of Change (TRY) continued..
  • Collaboration between elementary school practice and pre-service teacher education in university.
  • Discussions on theory and research.
  • Link between US and Turkey.
evaluation
Evaluation
  • Formal evaluation at all stages to keep the wheel rolling – collect data of progress
  • Summative evaluation –(i) involves qualitative analysis by interviews testing changes in attitudes (ii) test conceptual understanding of subject by quantitative means
our story
Our Story
  • Disseminate the data and experience by publishing in journals targeting educators, administrators, and students.
  • Comprehensive application with other universities.
  • In-service teacher education.
