Science Education and Civic Engagement:

An International Journal

 


 

Science Education and Civic Engagement: An International Journal is a peer-reviewed publication released twice per year online at www.seceij.net.

The mission of this journal is to explore constructive connections between science education and civic engagement that will enhance both experiences for our students. In the 21st century, mathematical and scientific reasoning is an essential element for full participation in a democratic society.

Contributions to this journal focus on using unsolved, complex civic issues as a framework to develop students' understanding of the role of scientific knowledge in personal and public decision making, along with examining how such knowledge is embedded in a broader social and political context.

Since many pressing issues are not constrained by national borders, we encourage perspectives that are international or global in scope. In addition to examining what students learn, we will also explore how this learning takes place and how it can be evaluated, documented, and strengthened. By exploring civic questions as unsolved challenges, we seek to empower students as engaged participants in their learning on campus and as citizens in their communities.

We invite you to consider submitting an article for consideration. Please visit www.seceij.net to learn more about the journal and to view submission guidelines.
