Example text

In one study (Lavonen, Jauhiainen, Koponen & Kurki-Suonio, 2004), experienced physics teachers in Finland participated in a one and one-half year professional development program that emphasized the use of lab work in physics. The designers of the program sought to change teachers beliefs about the ways labs might be used to foster conceptual development. They sought to develop teachers’ ideas that lab work could be used to build students’ epistemic knowledge of physics by emphasizing that laboratory observations should be interpreted against the background of socially constructed theory, rather than used as empirical “proof” that theory is correct.

EVANS IMPLICATIONS FOR BETWEEN CULTURE COMPARISONS OF SELF-EFFICACY BELIEFS The implications for between culture comparisons of self-efficacy are the same as those for within cultures. Because of the variability of sources of self-efficacy between all contexts both within and between cultures, comparisons of self-efficacy without substantial contextual information are of little value. Changes in teacher and student self-efficacies due to variations in teaching and learning can be followed within specific learning communities when there is a description of the contextual elements.
