Model for Didactical Analysis

Tulisan ini merupakan bagian dari portfolio yang saya tulis pada saat sedang mengikuti mata kuliah Design Science Education and Communication (DSEC). DSEC merupakan mata kuliah yang wajib saya ambil saat sedang melaksanakan studi di Utrecht University. Portfolio ini diberi nama Personal Design Manual (PDM). Tujuan dari tugas ini sediri adalah agar nantinya, PDM ini dapa digunakan sebagai pedoman dalam proses menciptakan desain pembelajaran. Paragraf berikut ini merupakan kalimat yang saya kutip dari Guideline dalam menulis PDM yang bisa didownload di BlackBoard Utrecht University. Semoga tulisan ini bermanfaat buat pembaca yang sedang merancang desain pembelajaran.

The aim of the task is to throughout the course develop a collection of ideas, principles, approaches and strategies that the student personally expects to be helpful in his/her future designing activities. The personal manual can be a selection of existing ideas but can also include self-developed strategies. The final result consists of the set of design principles, exemplified by concrete examples and complemented by a motivation why and how this design principle seems useful. It is hoped that the PDM document will serve as a personal guideline to start a new design activity later in the study or in a future professional career, and as such as an efficient means to access and refresh the course’s learning outcomes.

The explanation of this manual will be a part of the oral assessment. Although the manual should be a personal product, there are still general criteria that have to be met; Baca lebih lanjut

A critical review of the research: Teacher understanding of the nature of science and classroom practice: Factors that facilitate or impede the relationship

Tulisan berikut ini merupakan percobaan pertama dalam menulis critical analysis terhadap serangkaian riset yang dilakukan oleh Lederman (1997). Tulisan ini merupakan salah satu tugas yang diberikan oleh Dolly, dosen pengasuh mata kuliah Research Science Education and Communication (RSEC). RSEC sendiri merupakan salah satu mata kuliah yang saya ikuti di block 4 yang lalu. Sebenarnya terdapat banyak sekali kekurangan dari versi ideal yang disyaratkan, akan tetapi saya tetap mempertahankan versi  ini guna melihat sejauh mana perubahan yang telah saya lakukan selama mengikuti mata kuliah ini. Mohon masukannya.

Introduction

The development and students’ and teacher’ understanding and conception has been a concern of science education for over 40 years ago (Lederman, 1998). Many studies and reviews on the studies have been conducted in order to answer this problem and to validate the finding (for more information see in Lederman, 1998 & Fouad Abd-El-Khalick, 2000). This article is one of the efforts to do so. The author considers that giving this critical review on the research conducted by Lederman (1997) as the author critical perspective thinking in judging the reliability and validity of this research. Therefore this article mainly intend to give a critical review on the research conducted by Lederman (1997) as well addressed in report written in article namely “Teacher understanding of the nature of science and classroom practice: Factors that facilitate or impede the relationship”.
