Describing Physics Student Teachers' Orientations through Lesson Planning

Isik Saliha Karal
2017 Universal Journal of Educational Research  
Recent educational reforms realized in teacher education programs (TEPs) and secondary physics syllabus were aimed at placing the learning and teaching approaches in a constructivist framework.  ...  The purpose of this study was to describe physics student teachers' science teaching orientations which can be defined as the general patterns of thought and behaviour related to physics teaching and learning  ...  These teaching methods are based on questioning and investigating (inquiry, discovery etc. used in the scientific research process) and conceptual change (analogies, conceptual change texts, and learning  ...

An Overview of Conceptual Change Theories

Gökhan Özdemir, Douglas B. Clark
2007 Eurasia Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education  
Parnafes (submitted) investigated students' learning processes about physical phenomena through computational representation. Her research was grounded upon a knowledge-as-elements perspective.  ...  Learners' naïve knowledge influences their formal learning. Much naïve knowledge is highly resistant to change. Thus, conceptual change is a time consuming process.  ...
