A new approach in biology teaching: DNR-based teaching / Biyoloji eğitiminde yeni bir yaklaşım: EGS tabanlı öğretim
In recent years, widespread belief among biology teachers and educational researchers is the need of revising in-class activities for teaching meaningful scientific content and developing conceptual understanding. This belief focuses on rather than learning every piece of information; quality than quantity; making sense than memorizing; understanding than being aware of knowledge. Although the revised curriculum aims to train students in desired ways, studies on understanding and explaining biological phenomena revealed that, students have limited understanding and alternative conceptions even about the most biological processes. The implementation and the education effectiveness of new and different methods to make students love biology, teach them better, to develop a scientific conception in desired standards and ways are important. For this purpose, this study aims to find out the applicability of DNR-based teaching that was developed previously in mathematics education to teach and learn biology in digestive process and human digestive system.
