Applying Conceptual Change Strategies to College Science Teaching

by: Luli Stern, Tamar Yechieli, and Joseph Nussbaum

This chapter will focus on meaningful learning and conceptual change from the perspective of science education. The authors describe in detail two case studies of conceptual change-based curricula—one that focuses on the particulate nature of matter and the other on natural selection. Finally, they propose possible implications for teaching science at the college level.
