Are Misconceptions "So Yesterday"?


Friday, April 25, 2014 - 1:00pm


Erickson Hall 115

The DBER/Science Education journal club is back for one last meeting before the summer! We will meet on Friday, April 25 at 1 pm in the CREATE conference room (Erickson Hall 115--note new time so Andy and Joe can come) to discuss:

Are misconceptions "so yesterday"? We will read the attached essay by Maskiewicz and Lineback and the responding letter from Crowther and Price for different perspectives on how we, as DBER researchers and science educators, should view student conceptions and misconceptions. Joe Krajcik and Andy Anderson, both leading researchers in the learning sciences, will join us as we examine the authors' claims about misconceptions in the context of constructivism, and discuss how to advance our thinking about student learning in our research and disciplinary fields.

There will be snacks, so please sign up if you want some!

See you then,

Jess & Jennifer
