Context-based learning in different environments: design and approaches of answering context-based tasks in school, out-of-school and university learning environments
2014 (English)In: The 23rd IUPAC International Conference on Chemistry Education (ICCE 2014): Developing Learning Communities in the Chemical Science, 2014Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
Context-based learning (cbl) is well established in science education, as a guideline for curriculum development as well as a topic for research. While in Europe, most research and development focused on school level, Canadian amd American approaches provide impressive examples for context-based learning in higher education. In our projects we use context-based tasks for learners in different environments and on different levels of education, such as regular teaching on secondary level (Nentwig et al., 2007; Parchmann et al., submitted), out-of-school learning in so called sutdent-labs for primary (Dunker et al., in press) and secondary school students (Schwarzer et al., 2013), and for tutorials on university level (Parchmann et al., submitted). In this presentation we will explore the design criteria for cbl-tasks referring to the different groups of learners and to the different learning situations. We will also give insights into first results of analyzing students' approahces of working with cbl-tasks.
