FISER 2014 - 2nd International Conference on Frontiers in Mathematics and Science Education

Date :  du 01-05-2014 au 03-05-2014

Lieu :  Famagusta

Organisation : 
Science Education Research Group at the Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU), in partnership with the European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education (EJSME)

Programme : 
The aim of FISER 2014 is to provide a scholarly environment for promoting discussions in contemporary topics of mathematical and natural sciences education research.

      Conference topics:

      1. Undergraduate Mathematics and Science curricula

      Specifying and assessing ambitious yet transparent learning objectives
      Challenges of recruitment and retainment in specific programmes
      Students’ early experience of research-like work in science and mathematics
      Inquiry oriented formats and methods for courses, tutorials and labs
      Science and mathematics teaching for majors of other subjects
      Internal transition problems (students’ experience of coherence of programmes)
      External transition problems (how do programs relate to secondary level and to professions)

      2. Didactical design in science and mathematics

      Discipline-based educational research
      Didactical design as an innovation approach: construction and evaluation of IBSME
      Didactical design as a method of research into the dynamics of teaching and learning
      Didactical designs for the detection and vindication of concrete obstacles for learners
      Designing experimental environments for student learning in mathematics and science
      Assessment and evaluation in mathematics and science classrooms
      Conceptual Learning Strategies

      3. Technology for Teaching and Learning in Science and Mathematics

      Computer algebra systems in secondary level teaching and assessment
      Virtual labs and other forms of ICT based experimental student work
      E-learning in science and mathematics
      Distance teaching and learning in science and mathematics
      Environments for students’ autonomous work with science and mathematics resources (e.g. from the Internet)

      4. Faculty Professional Development

      Specific needs and methods for professional development of university teachers of mathematics and science
      Faculty’s needs for training
      Models of faculty development
      Assessment of faculty development

      5. Education and development of science and mathematics teachers

      Pre-service teacher education curricula: implicit and explicit models of teacher knowledge
      Systems of induction into practice: bridging the gap between pre-service curricula and teaching practice
      Innovative forms of in-service teacher development, e.g. lesson study and online learning communities
      Links and gaps between university science and mathematics, and teachers’ knowledge and practice
      International comparative studies of teacher knowledge

      6. Contemporary Issues

      The role of language in science and mathematics education
      Culture and learning
      Conceptual changes in mathematics and science education
      Social issues in STEM education
      Critical and creative thinking skills
      Project-based instruction
      Prospects for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC)
      The use of the history of mathematics and science in the teaching of mathematics and science.

      Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

      - Professor Edward Redish, Professor of Physics at the University of Maryland in College Park
      - Professor Gabriele Kaiser, full professor for mathematics education at the Faculty of Education, Psychology and Human Movement of the University of Hamburg
      - Sibel Erduran, Professor of Science Education at University of Bristol, UK
