Innovative Initiatives: Targeting the Declining Science Enrolments in Ireland
AbstractAt a time of economic growth in Ireland, the declining numbers of students enrolling in the sciences is emerging as an educational concern. Using a 2002 Government of Ireland commissioned report on science: The Task Force on the Physical Sciences (TFPS) as a guide, this article examines initiatives aimed at promoting science education in relation to recent social, philosophical, economic and cultural changes in the Republic of Ireland. Shifts in thinking about science teaching and innovative pedagogical strategies at both the secondary and tertiary levels of education are discussed.
