Karaarslan, Güliz; Teksöz, Gaye; Department of Elementary Education (2016)
The main purpose of this thesis is to explore how science teachers could become Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) educators. The study was conducted in five stages which are: gap analysis, developing systems thinking skills measurement tools, designing an outdoor ESD course, conducting a pilot study, and conducting the main study. Through gap analysis, systems thinking was found out to be a required competence for science teachers to become ESD educators. In the second stage, twelve systems thinki...
Science teacher candidates' perceptions about roles and nature of scientific models
Turkoglu, Ayse Yenilmez; Öztekin, Ceren (Informa UK Limited, 2016-05-03)

For scientists, they provide a means for generating new knowledge or function as an accessible summary of scientific studies. In science education, on the other hand, they are accessible representations of abstract concepts, and are also organizational frameworks to teach and learn inaccessible facts. As being indispensable parts of learning and doing science, use of scientific models in science classes should be reinforced...
