Describing and supporting effective science teaching and learning in Australian schools - validation issues
Previous Contents Next


In large funded projects such as this one, the tensions between development and research, between advocacy and critical appraisal, and between the practicable and the possible, are ever present. The SiS Research project has allowed an exciting exploration of science teaching and learning within real and challenging contexts. It is research that makes a difference. The layered nature of the validation processes described in this paper is a response to the way the research sits within a complex project environment, and the multiple purposes served by this description of effective science teaching and learning.
