Konferenz: Frontiers in Mathematics and Science Education Research 2014 (FISER14). Famagusta, Nordzypern. Internet: Frontiers in Mathematics and Science Education Research 2014

Termin: 01. - 03. Mai 2014


FISER14 ist nach 2009 die zweite internationale Konferenz zum Thema Grenzen im Mathematik- und Naturwissenschaftsunterricht, die von der Bildungsforschungsgruppe an der Eastern Mediterranean University organisiert und in Zusammenarbeit mit dem European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education (EJSME) sowie dem Contemporary Educational Technology (CEDTECH) durchgeführt wird. Nach wie vor ist es das Ziel der Konferenz, ein wissenschaftliches Umfeld für die Förderung von Diskussionen und den Austausch von Ideen zeitgenössischer Themen der mathematischen und der naturwissenschaftlichen Bildungsforschung aufzubauen.


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.
