Science as knowledge and culture
The nordic research symposium on science teaching (NFSUN) will be organized for the tenth time in 2011. The first conference was held in Ebeltoft in Denmark in 1984, and has been conducted every three years since then. The Nordic countries alternate as hosts for the symposium, and this time it will be held in Linköping in Sweden.
The symposium is an important forum for presenting and discussing research in Nordic science education. Research and development are combined, and researchers and educators from preschool, primary, secondary and university are all welcome to participate. The symposium serves both as a meeting place and as a platform for the establishment of networks in science education research.
The symposium took place between the 14th and 16th of June 2011, at Nationernas Hus in the Linköping city center. Slides for some of the keynote speakers can be downloaded via the link below:
The symposium is planned and organized by representatives from five departments at Linköping University:
- Department of Behavioural Sciences and Learning
- Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology
- Department of Social and Welfare Studies
- Department of Science and Technology
- Department of Tema
Collaboration will include other Nordic countries, as well as the municipality of Linköping and Norrköping, and Östsam.
