Inquiry Science Instruction: What Makes it Successful for University- and Pre-University Students?

Referentin: Prof. Marcia Linn, Ph.D. | Moderation: Prof. Dr. Frank Fischer

Effective science inquiry instruction prepares students to independently interpret personally relevant scientific materials such as graphs of the benefits of alternative treatments, to make decisions about science experiments, and to build coherent understanding of science. Recent research on ways to support students as they investigate dynamic scientific models, interpret graphs of results, and collaborate to solve challenging problems suggests promising ways to lead inquiry courses. In undergraduate research experiences, pre-college inquiry labs, and after school project courses, students benefit from guidance that promotes what we call knowledge integration. Examples from multiple courses across the age spectrum will illustrate these points.

Marcia Linn ist Professorin für Entwicklungs- und Kognitionspsychologie an der University of California in Berkeley. Im Mai 2016 ist sie auf Einladung von Frank Fischer (Senior Researcher in Residence am CAS) Fellow am CAS.
