The High Risks of Improving Teaching
Bibliography - STCSE The bibliography is based on a collection of papers on students' pre-instructional (alternative) conceptions Helga Pfundt started in the late 70s. Since 1984 Reinders Duit has taken care of the bibliography. Initially, the focus was on students' conceptions of various science topics. As this area has developed towards constructivist perspectives of conceptual change the emphasis of the bibliography has also changed. The new name of the bibliography takes these changes into account. Please notice: This is the last version of the bibliography available.
Teachers For A New Era The 2013 NFL football season is almost here and we are curious to see how the bookmakers will create the lines for the Teachers of a New era as things continuously change we face a serious challenge of beating the books to profit. This becomes increasingly difficult as we have more information to study everything from line movements to sports services like this one that offer to sell people weekly sports picks during the National Football League season. So what we as teachers need to do is work as diligently as possible to find loopholes and vulnerabilities to help profit during the season.
Perfesser Plum, at your service. [That's a statue of Odysseus---not Perfesser Plum.] Don't we sometimes wonder, "Hey! Just how did I get here?" Odysseus wondered [also wandered], far from home, but never gave up on making it back. Even when he'd turned old, Odysseus was ready for more.Death closes all; but something ere the end, Some work of noble note, may yet be done, ...The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks; The long day wanes; the slow moon climbs; the deep Moans round with many voices.

“Student Outcomes” is a continuing series of interviews with my former students who are now experiencing “real life” after college. Considering how much of our work is based on the assumption that “learning outcomes” will be met, I thought it would be a good way to catch up with them and to see what sort of impact college has had on their lives in the long term. Past students interested in participating should e-mail me. PEDABLOGUE - A personal inquiry into the scholarship of teaching by Michael Arnzen
News: Bye-Bye Bio 101: Teach Science the Way You Do Science University science education needs reform, and effective methods are already known. Yet for years, many scientists and educators have actively resisted changing their teaching methods. Now, a group of persistent reformers is raising scientists' awareness of successful approaches to science teaching and providing them with tools to implement those strategies in their own classrooms and institutions. "There is mounting evidence that supplementing or replacing lectures with active learning strategies and engaging students in discovery and scientific process improves learning and retention of knowledge," writes lead author Jo Handelsman, Howard Hughes Medical Institute professor and plant pathology researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in a policy forum article published in the April 23, 2004, issue of the journal Science.
