Event description

Description

The next UYSEG network meeting will take place on Friday 24th March from 5 - 6.15pm. It will be led by Dr Sabine Clarke, a lecturer in modern history with a background in science teaching.

This session seeks to move beyond the use of history to present learners with heroic 'eureka' moments in science and consider alternative ways to deploy history to foster engagement and understanding. This includes the use of history to expand understanding of the diversity of people and roles involved in scientific endeavour, the idea of science as a collective project, and the issue of how we refer to a past in which scientists embraced ideas and understandings that we now consider to be wrong. What vision of longer term scientific progress should we present to learners?
