Creating Representations in Science Pedagogy
This is an Australian Research Council funded project which is investigating the quality of science learning occurring through a representation-construction pedagogy, supported by students’ use of digital technologies, and new approaches to assessment and teacher professional learning. The pedagogy involves students generating, negotiating and evaluating multimodal representations as resources for reasoning and learning relating to the key dimensions of the Australian Science curriculum. It will investigate re-framing assessment around students’ developing representational capabilities to support and monitor student learning. School based action-learning teams in NSW and Victoria will extend and refine the pedagogy to inform curriculum policy aimed at student engagement with science.
This is a multi-institutional project including:
– La Trobe University
– Deakin University
– University of Technology Sydney
– University of Wollongong
