You are invited to an online conversation via Zoom on Discourse strategies for scientific literacy in a post-truth era
As part of Curtin University's Meet the Experts conversation series, Associate Professor Kok-Sing Tang talks to Dr Brad Gobby about his upcoming book “Discourse strategies for Science Teaching & Learning” in conjunction with his recent article in The Conversation on teaching scientific literacy in a post-truth era.
The book and article emphasize the importance of understanding science as a discourse and what it means to use discourse strategies to facilitate science meaning-making. The conversation will cover both the “why” and “how” to teach science as a discourse and explore implications for policy makers, researchers and teachers.
