EARLI SIG 3 invites researchers and practitioners to share their perspectives with colleagues on theoretical and empirical research questions, from various themes including:
student conceptions in various domains (e.g. science, mathematics, social sciences, controversial issues), instructional strategies for inducing conceptual change; conceptual understanding and learning; language, discourse and concept learning; argumentation; methods in conceptual change research; use of metaphor, analogy and modeling in concept learning; curriculum design for conceptual change; teacher pedagogical content knowledge and instructional materials to support conceptual change teaching; metacognition and conceptual change; conceptual change in history of science.
