TLRP: What can we reasonably expect of research in science education? - Presidential Address
I want to focus on some questions which have always been important ones for science education researchers to consider but which are, I think, growing in prominence and therefore in importance. They are about the role and purpose of science education research. What is science education research for? What do we hope to achieve through the research, which we do? What can we reasonably expect of science education research? These are issues which cross-national boundaries and concern us all, whatever national context we work within. So although I will make some reference to recent debates about educational research in the UK, the issues that are raised are international.
