Natural Science and Technology Didactics research
In MDU's Natural Science and Technology Didactics research (NT Didactics), researchers, in collaboration with school and higher education, investigate how the use of language and natural science discourse can be developed in teaching.
Research in NT Didactics is conducted in collaboration with the other research groups within the field of didactics and education at MDU and is characterised by an openness towards different research perspectives.
The focus areas
Ongoing research projects
In recent decades, promising frameworks of critical features of high-quality teacher professional development (PD) programs have been proposed. However, recent studies have shown it to be remarkably difficult to affect instructional practices, even when the offered PD is designed in relation to such frameworks.
