Science education stakeholders worldwide are engaged in efforts to support teachers' noticing and making sense of students' thinking in science. Here we introduce the design of a science teaching video club and present a study of its implementation. The current design extends prior research on video clubs as a form of professional development for supporting mathematics teachers. Results indicate that the current design supported science teachers in noticing and discussing students' thinking in sustained and meaningful ways.
On May 17th – 23rd, 2016, more than 150 projects will showcase three-minute videos of their innovative work broadening participation and access to STEM. We invite researchers, practitioners, administrators, policy makers and the general public to view the videos and to interact with each of the presenters online. We look forward to your participation!
Consider the role project videos can play in dissemination of research with OSPrI describing their video experience, and NSF situating the work within their efforts to improve policymakers’ understanding of DR K–12 research and development.
A challenge for researchers and federal research funding institutions in the 21st century is how to get the word out on how research is pertinent and being used in by the field. According to Neild (2016, p1):
Neild, R.C. (2016, April). Federally-supported education research doesn't need a do-over. Brookings Institute SERIES: Evidence Speaks, Number 32 of 33. http://www.brookings.edu/research/papers/2016/04/07-federally-supported-research-doesnt-need-do-over-neild?rssid=education&utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzRss&utm_campaign=FeedBlitzRss&utm_content=Federally-supported+education+research+doesn%27t+need+a+do-over
