If you have a question about this talk, please contact Alisa Molotova.

What is the optimum level of guidance teachers should provide when teaching scientific concepts and skills? Which teaching approach works the best and for whom? How do students’ previous knowledge and achievement level interact with teaching? During the first part of the talk I will explore these questions and introduce the audience in current debates in science education research concerning the “best” way to teach science in schools and more particularly in primary schools. In the second part of the talk, I will offer some empirical insight into how educational researchers study these sort of questions and what are the challenges they face in a school environment. Examples from my PhD work will be provided.
