Focus of socio-scientific issues in science teachers’ professional competence development in Sweden
2016 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
The Swedish National Agency for Education is currently implementing a project aiming to raise the didactical competence of science teachers at all school levels. The project uses a praxis-based collegial learning approach supported by facilitators and framed by the project web portal presenting study modules. The authors of this paper have been in charge of the material development for the module “teaching science through socio-scientific issues”. The material developers’ work was enriched and supported by the experience of EU funded project Promoting Attainment of Responsible Research and Innovation in Science Education. The aim of this paper is to highlight a question: what lessons could be learned from the process of material production for the professional development of science teachers in Sweden?
