Chilean Pre-service and In-service Teachers and Undergraduate Students’ Understandings of Evolutionary Theory
Describing and characterising knowledge about evolution among 120 freshman undergraduate students of two natural sciences programmes, 80 pre-service science teachers, and 45 in-service teachers in Santiago, Chile revealed that more than 70% of teachers (pre-service and in- service) and undergraduate students recognised the theory of evolution as established scientific knowledge.
The relationship between biology teachers’ understanding of the nature of science and the understanding and acceptance of the theory of evolution
ABSTRACT Despite the importance of the theory of evolution (TE) to scientific knowledge, a number of misconceptions continue to be found among biology teachers. In this context, the first objective
Teachers who Reflect their Teaching : Developing the PCK of Evolution and Nature of science
Changing the teaching practice is a complex task for science teachers, especially if they are not aware about their Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK). This knowledge described by Shulman (1986) is
Relationships between degree/area of academic formation and religious and Darwinian views are controversial. This study aimed to compare the religious beliefs and acceptance of Darwinian evolution
The effect of teaching the nature of science on students’ acceptance and understanding of evolution: myth or reality?
Abstract The results of studies of the nature of science (NOS) as a factor that enhances students’ understanding of evolution have been inconclusive. Therefore, the main purpose of this study was to


Educación Científica y Evolutiva en Chile: Problemas Funcionales y Confictos entre Enseñar y Aprender

The scientific study of evolution in Chile has experienced periods of diversification and stasis, depending upon the social and political context at different times, and there is little at present that suggests an organized creationist or intelligent design movement surge in the near future.
A Cross‐Cultural Comparison of Korean and American Science Teachers’ Views of Evolution and the Nature of Science
Despite a few international comparisons of the evolutionary beliefs of the general public, comparatively less research has focused on science teachers. Cross‐cultural studies offer profitable
Current Status of Research in Teaching and Learning Evolution: I. Philosophical/Epistemological Issues
Scholarship that addresses teaching and learning about evolution has rapidly increased in recent years. This review of that scholarship first addresses the philosophical/epistemological issues that

Science teaching must evolve
This issue high-lights a problem for science education in Europe: biology teaching all but ignores the contribution of molecular science to evolutionary theory, and Hal Salzman and Lindsay Lowell question a common concern about US education.
Academic preparation in biology and advocacy for teaching evolution: Biology versus non-biology teachers
Despite considerable focus on evolution knowledge–belief relationships, little research has targeted populations with strong content backgrounds, such as undergraduate degrees in biology. This study
