The 11th Conference of the European Researchers in Didactics of Biology (ERIDOB 2016) took place in Karlstad, Sweden between September 5th to September 9th, 2016. The ERIDOB conference serves as an important milestone in the European biology education community, providing biology educators and biology education researchers with the opportunity to present their work and learn from biology education efforts around Europe.
PARRISE was well represented at the ERIDOB 2016 conference, through oral and poster paper presentations, as well as a symposium presentation.
The symposium entitled “Socio-scientific based inquiry in the context of biology teaching” was organized and chaired by the workpage leader of WP1 of the PARRISE project, Dr. Ralph Levinson (UCL Institute of Education). The symposium focused on the experiences of five PARRISE partners (UCL Institute of Education, University of Southampton, Utrecht University, Ecole Nationale de Formation Agronomique, University of Montpellier) with the Socio-Scientific Inquiry-Based learning (SSIBL) pedagogical framework. In particular, the presentations of the symposium aimed at introducing and distinguishing the SSIBL framework from the classical inquiry-based learning method, as well as at discussing the experiences and challenges of science teachers when employing the framework.
