Event description

Description

Issues and Debates on Science Education and Energy Transition in France.

The teaching of science, especially physics in French secondary education, is strongly structured by the concept of energy. Furthermore, energy transition is a socially acute question in France, because it puts in debate the lifestyles, the political and technical choices, and the visions of the future of territories. How can we approach energy transition in science education?

In this REDI Seminar, Associate Professor Nicolas Hervé (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Formation de l’Enseignement Agricole (ENSFEA, University of Toulouse, France)) will discuss science teaching challenges posed by energy transition in the French context. Through a few examples, he will also question teaching and learning processes allowed by implementation of educational activities specific to the social scientific issues (debates, role games, controversies mapping, inquiry).
