The 4th International Conference for Science Educators and Teachers

(ISET 2016)

KhonKaen University, Thailand

3-5 June, 2016

BRIDGING THE GAP, MOVING TO THE FUTURE

          How can we better prepare students for the 21st Century?   A new generation of teachers is needed with deeper and broader range scientific knowledge and related teaching methods and skills.   This capacity is needed to address opportunities and challenges unlike those seen by any previous generations in this rapidly globalizing world.

          Possibly the most critical need in science education in this regard today is to bridge the gap between education theory and practice: between the research and the classroom.

          This will require closer collaboration between researchers and teachers with the aim of more directly impacting the intended beneficiaries. These include science education students and ultimately the new generation of students they prepare to become productive and more science-literature citizens.

          In this conference our purpose is to better understand this challenge and identify obstacles and ways to overcome them.  We will explore new pathways toward making research more immediately applicable in the classroom, and to make the classroom more responsive to new ideas and approaches emerging from research.
