Science Education in the 21st Century:  Using the tools of Science to Teach Science

Et venez à la conférence commémorative Herzberg, prononcée par le lauréat du prix Nobel Carl Wieman – codécouvreur du condensat de Bose-Einstein. Le titre de la conférence sera : Science Education in the 21st Century: Using the Tools of Science to Teach Science.

Guided by experimental tests of theory and practice, science has advanced rapidly in the past 500 years. Guided primarily by tradition and dogma, science education meanwhile has remained largely medieval. Research on how people learn is now revealing how many teachers badly misinterpret what students are thinking and learning from traditional science classes and exams. However, research is also providing insights on how to do much better. The combination of this research with modern information technology is setting the stage for a new approach that can provide the relevant and effective science education for all students that is needed for the 21st century.  I will discuss the failures of traditional educational practices, even as used by "very good" teachers, and the successes of some new practices and technology that characterize this more effective approach.  Some applications to technical presentations will also be mentioned. 

This event is tailored for the general public. No mathematical or scientific knowledge is necessary.
