of three separate evaluation capacity building (ECB) efforts at informal science
learning organizations in order to inform a new model for developing informal science
educators’ evaluation literacy.
“Grandma says I am a little scientist.” Apprenticeship, Photo-Storytelling, and Identity: A Science Educator’s Culturally Situated Auto-Ethnographic Family Case Study
In this two and half year case study, I used auto ethnography to explore my dual identities as a science educator and grandmother to guide my granddaughter’s explicit early STEM identity development as she baked Sabbath bread with me.
Learning and Becoming in Movement at the Intersection of Formal and Informal Science
This paper builds on the policy statement of the Informal Science Education “Ad Hoc” Committee (Dierking et al., 2003), and unpacks what a convincing story of real world and lifelong learning in science might entail, as called for in the policy document.
Paths Toward Hybridity between Equity and Field-Based Environmental Education for Novice Science Teachers
It has become increasingly critical that we no longer consider environmental and social justice issues separately. Well-researched examples of real-world paths toward hybridizing equity and field-based teaching in science education are rare, yet are especially important now, not only as we move towards anti-racist pedagogy, but also in response to the global pandemic and climate change.
