Future Science Education curriculum preparation in Korea: Globalisation/Glocalisation

30 June 2018

3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Room 045, 29 Wally's Walk

What educational preparations can be made in response to changes in future society?

The Department of Educational Studies, Faculty of Human Science at Macquarie University invites you to a seminar with visiting scholar, Professor Jinwoong Song.

As of 2009, schools in Korea have implemented arts integrated STEM education to foster positive attitudes towards learning science in students. However, more recently, Korean educators are developing a new curriculum in efforts to better prepare the next generation of Korean students to changes in future society.

Dr Jinwoong Song, currently a professor at Seoul National University, is involved in several multi-year science education projects that are projecting future education trends in Korea. Two of these projects, titled “Glocal Social Changes and Educational Response (GCER)” and “The development of Korea Science Education Standards (KSES) for the next generation”, involve science education groups across several other Asian countries.

Following Dr Song’s presentation, the project team will also share one of their ongoing sub-studies on “Technology in Education – Digital Textbooks”. Dr Jina Chang, who is a postdoctoral researcher in this team, will present how to construct external representations in science digital textbooks.

Based on this seminar, we will discuss what educational preparations can be made in response to changes in future society.

This seminar is a good opportunity for researchers/academics in Sydney who are interested in curriculum development in response to changes in future society to meet Dr Jinwoong Song and his project group.
