Abstract [en]

Context-based learning (CBL) approaches have become popular in several parts of the world. The intentions with this more unconventional teaching and learning approach are to frame content knowledge into interesting and relevant contexts and to engage students to higher interest, and thereby, hopefully, increased learning. An educational challenge has been to design suitable tasks adapted to both affective and cognitive aspects. To assess students’ chemistry content knowledge, tasks possible to use in class need to be developed, and to make the tasks interesting and relevant to the students, the teachers are central. In this project, chemistry teachers attending two different teacher conferences have worked together with a chemistry education researcher to develop context-based everyday-life open-ended chemistry problems. In this presentation, the process of the development of the context-based problems will be explored, and the ongoing work where the problems are applied in class where students have worked together solving the problems will be discussed.
