|Title:||A Community of Practice for Early Career Biology Teachers: Social Networking and Digital Technologies||Contributor(s):||Duncan, Jacinta C (author); Chandler, Paul (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10655||Abstract:||The challenge for science teacher educators is to develop pedagogies and employ technologies which embrace "communities of practice" as core to both science practice and teacher learning. In this presentation, we consider early career biology teachers - those who are presumably of the "net generation", but whose engagement with both online communities and communities of practice in their fields of teaching is surprisingly limited. We present pedagogical practices (and online tools) specifically designed to foster a community of practice and the collaborative creation of a multimodal e-learning resource. These represent our first steps towards reconceptualising 'method' studies as a longitudinal community of practice rather than a 'one shot wonder'.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Symposium on Contemporary Approaches to Research in Mathematics, Science, Health and Environmental Education, Burwood, Australia, 24th - 25th November, 2011||Conference Details:||Symposium on Contemporary Approaches to Research in Mathematics, Science, Health and Environmental Education, Burwood, Australia, 24th - 25th November, 2011||Source of Publication:||Papers from the Symposium on Contemporary Approaches to Research in Mathematics, Science, Health and Environmental Education, p. 1-9||Publisher:||Deakin University||Place of Publication:||online||Field of Research (FOR):||130212 Science, Technology and Engineering Curriculum and Pedagogy||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||970113 Expanding Knowledge in Education||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.deakin.edu.au/arts-ed/efi/conferences/math-symposium2011/papers/duncan-chandler.pdf
