Article
Full-text available
In “How do I live in this strange place?”, Samantha Vice contends that white South Africans ought to feel shame for their unjustly acquired privilege and their morally compromised selves, and recommends that they engage with humility and political silence in projects of personal transformation though private, critical self-examination. On one view,...

In Knowledge in a Social World (1999) Alvin Goldman has defended a ‘veritistic’ or truth-oriented, monistic account of the aim of education. In particular, he argued that the inculcation of true belief constitutes the ultimate goal of education, with other educational activities having only instrumental value insofar as they aid in this goal. In co...
Article

Conceptual change in the domain of evolution requires two simultaneous changes: changes in students' theoretical conceptions (i.e., developing a proper understanding of evolutionary models) and changes in students' epistemic practices (i.e., learning the inquiry practices scientists use to develop, revise, and evaluate explanatory models). Model-ba...
Article
Full-text available
Psychological and educational researchers have developed a flourishing research program on epistemological dimensions of cognition (epistemic cognition). Contemporary philosophers investigate many epistemological topics that are highly relevant to this program but that have not featured in research on epistemic cognition. We argue that integrating...

Educational researchers in the fields of "Personal Epistemology" (PE) and the "Understanding of the Nature of Science" (UNOS) suggest that attending to learners' ideas about the nature, sources and limits of knowledge promises a better account of cognitive development and real prescriptions for improving educational practice (e.g. King & Kitchener,...
Conference Paper

Completed MEL diagrams, along with the small-group argumentation sessions they supported, represent rich sour...
Article
The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for exploring how contemporary developments in philosophy can enrich learning sciences research on epistemic cognition (EC). In three papers, we discuss ways in which research on epistemic cognition can profit greatly from closer attention to the philosophical literature. The first paper reviews a...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The construction and evaluation of scientific models, together with the iterative modification of these models in response to evidence, constitute paradigmatic scientific practices. If inquiry instruction is to engage students in authentic scientific reasoning, these practices need to become routine in the science curriculum. This paper reports on...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We report on a large study of how U.S. middle-school students learned to reason scientifically in a science curriculum centered around models and argumentation. We discuss the design of our curriculum, the method of the study, and present selected results related to overall curriculum effects and to methods of promoting growth in students' reasonin...
