Improving Science Education

This book takes stock of where we are in science education research, and considers where we ought now to be going. It explores how and whether the research effort in science education has contributed to improvements in the practice of teaching science and the science curriculum. It contains contributions from an international group of science educators. Each chapter explores a specific area of research in science education, considering why this research is worth doing, and its potential for development. Together they look candidly at important general issues such as the impact of research on classroom practice and the development of science education as a progressive field of research. The book was produced in celebration of the work of the late Rosalind Driver. All the principal contributors to the book had professional links with her, and the three sections of the book focus on issues that were of central importance in her work: research on teaching and learning in science; the role of science within the school curriculum and the nature of the science education we ought to be providing for young people; and the achievements of, and future agenda for, research in science education.
Teaching ethics in primary science Teaching ethics in primary science Новинка

Teaching ethics in primary science

This book focuses on teaching ethics in primary science classrooms. Such teaching is important because it engages students not only in the human aspects of science, but also in science more generally, leading to enhanced scientific literacy and ultimately contributing to responsible citizenship. Teaching ethics in science also presents opportunities for developing students’ argumentation, critical thinking and decision-making skills, and helps students become more ethically aware, knowledgeable and discerning in science. Ethics in science has a prominent role in the New Zealand Curriculum within the ‘nature of science’ strand in the science learning area. However, there is a paucity of research demonstrating how this might be implemented with primary-age students. This work determines firstly whether primary students can engage in ethical discussions in science. Secondly, it focuses on the question of support needed for primary teachers and whether it is helpful for teachers to use a subject-specific planner for teaching ethics in science.

Methods in business ethics research

Due to the surge of business scandals over the past years there is an increased interest in business ethics and moral behavior in business. What are the dynamics that cause a purchaser to accept a bribe, accountants to become fraudulent, bankers to ruthlessly speculate on currencies, stocks, commodities, and mortgages, without any regards to the consequences? And why and under which circumstances do CEOs try cover up the scale of disasters caused by their corporations? Questions like these and the consequent request for moral behavior in business have received increased attention in the academic community. The field of business ethics seeks to answer these. This book will discuss research and research methods in the field of decision-making business ethics research. It provides a brief explanation of the causes and backgrounds for the increased interest in business ethics research. Because of its popularity and the proven track record in helping to find answers to the above questions, a major part of this book will discuss scenario-based decision-making research with a focus on ethical and unethical decision-making in businesses and organizations.

Rural Indians' Perceptions of Brands Based on Ethics in Advertising

Advertising as well as Marketing to the rural consumers is an altogether different ballgame. Here, life of the people revolves around traditional or cultural beliefs and values rather than on rationality and pragmatism. No wonder then, that customer perception of brands here plays a pivotal role in customers'purchase decision-making for various product categories and hence understanding that has significant relevance for marketers. Ethics in advertisements play a very important role in forming and molding the customer perception for their brands.Not much research was carried out earlier on the impact of ethics in advertisements on the customers' perception of brands in the context of rural India. This book is an attempt to fill that knowledge gap. It is based on a research conducted in rural areas of Uttar Pradesh-the biggest state in India in terms of the population. It was thought useful to come up with the outcome of a research on the issue of customer perception of brands based on ethics on advertising which carries a huge significance in the world of Marketing.

Constructivist Teaching Practices and Students Learning Science

A constructivist learning environment has been explored as a way to assist students in achieving greater success with learning science. With regard to teaching science, research has focused primarily on developing constructivist learning environments which has been a major factor affecting student learning positively (Ogbuehi & Fraser, 2007). A constructivist epistemology focuses on the construction of reality through the senses (Kim, Fisher, & Fraser, 1999; Wheatley, 1991). This study also indicates the power and influence of exceptional teachers in working with other teachers.It suggests that science teaching can be like science itself – encouraging ideas for changes and improvements, devising Action Research Projects to collect evidence of successes (and failures), and reporting on positive results as recognition of real success over time. It is a way of informing and encouraging such changes on the part of other teachers.
The Science of Qualitative Research The Science of Qualitative Research Новинка

The Science of Qualitative Research

This updated and expanded edition is a unique examination of qualitative research in the social sciences, raising and answering the question of why we do this kind of investigation. Rather than providing instructions on how to conduct qualitative research, The Science of Qualitative Research explores the multiple roots of qualitative research - including phenomenology, hermeneutics, and critical theory - in order to diagnose the current state of the field and recommend an alternative. The author argues that much qualitative research today uses the mind-world dualism that is typical of traditional experimental investigation, and recommends that instead we focus on constitution: the relationship of mutual formation between a form of life and its members. Michel Foucault's program for 'a history ontology of ourselves' provides the basis for this fresh approach. The new edition features updated chapters, and a brand new chapter which offers a discussion on how to put into practice Foucault's concept.

A Framework for Evaluating ICT Integration in Teacher Education

This book proposes a framework for evaluating ICT integration in Teacher Education. The material presented in this book is distilled from a research that was done using primary school teacher training colleges in Kenya as a case study.This research was motivated by the fact that there is a lot of disjointed initiatives aimed at integrating ICT into education in Kenya with little effort directed at evaluating the impact of these initiatives. This has created a gaping rhetoric-reality gap that new research efforts need to bridge.The research presented in this book is a step towards bridging this gap by proposing a framework to guide evaluation of ICT in Education. Though this research used primary teacher education as a case study, its findings can provide insight and a basis for further research in evaluation of ICT integration at other levels of Education. This book can be of use to researchers and practitioners in the field of Technology in Education. Teachers at primary and Secondary school levels will find this book useful as a guide to facets of computer use in a school environment.It is our hope that this work will motivate and excite further research in ICT and Education.

Assessing the need for a code of ethics for librarians in Zambia

The book has confirmed that Librarians in Zambia are in need of a code of ethics and that there were professional values such as patron service and equal access to information among others that librarians adhere to in the absence of a code of ethics. The absence of a code of ethics affected the performance of librarians while on duty. Furthermore, the book found out that the Zambia Library Association has the capacity to develop the code of ethics but no capacity to enforce it due to the absence of library legislation which is also the major barrier to the Associations establishment of the code of ethics for its profession. Finally, it is necessary for the Library Association to develop a code of ethics for its professionals first and later lobby for library legislation.

Carver Miriam Mayhew A Carver Policy Governance Guide, Implementing Policy Governance and Staying on Track

The Carver Policy Governance Guide series includes six booklets that offer board members a description of John Carver's Policy Governance model of board leadership. Policy Governance enables a board to fulfill its accountability to its organization's «owners,» whether the owners are association members, city residents, company shareholders, or a community of interest. Policy Governance addresses the board's engagement in financial, programmatic, and personnel matters; roles of officers and committees; reporting and evaluation; agendas; and other aspects of the board job. Implementing Policy Governance and Staying on Track shows boards how they can apply the principles of the Policy Governance model and change the way they govern in practice. The guide cuts across various aspects of the Policy Governance model and challenges board members to move from concepts to practice. The Policy Governance model is based on the functions rather than the structure of a governing board. It outlines commonsense principles about governing that fit together into an entire system. The practices of the Policy Governance board, which are consistent with the principles, allow it to control without meddling, focus on long-term organizational outputs, powerfully delegate to a CEO and staff, and discharge its fiduciary responsibility in a visionary, strategic manner. Because the model is a total system, the Carver Policy Governance Guide series offers boards a complete set of principles for fulfilling their various obligations.
