SCIENCE EDUCATION, A PUBLIC GOOD FOR THE GOOD OF THE PUBLIC? RESEARCH TO EMPOWER, EVOKE, AND REVOLUTIONIZE
The conference theme is a fitting call for this era of drastic change (e.g., population shifts, prominence of technology, disappearing economies) and daunting challenges (e.g., increased frequency of life-impacting natural and human-inspired disasters). It is a charge to conduct science education research for a socially just world.
The time for research to empower (envision beyond the existing boundaries), evoke (think and act boldly in times of ease and turmoil), and revolutionize (abandon the idea good intentions are enough and institute change to achieve equitable and equal outcomes) is now. It is this kind of research the 2021 conference aims to inspire.
CREATE is at lots of sessions today - we will post the remainder of the schedule soon.
