REFLECTING ON REFORM
Join us in Chicago for the NARST 96th Annual International Conference. We look forward to building on last year’s theme of inviting and uniting as a community and coming together to reflect on global science education reforms. For members in the United States, 2023 marks the ten-year anniversary of NGSS. Internationally, parallel reforms are underway that also call for new approaches to promote scientific literacy and workforce readiness. As an organization NARST is committed to the improvement of science teaching and learning through research and one of the target audiences for our research is policymakers. Our research-based reflections on the implementation of these current reforms can inform future policy as we explore what is working and what is not working in formal K-12 spaces, higher education settings, and informal spaces.
