What sorts of worlds do we live in nowadays? Teaching biology in a post-modern age.

By Michael Reiss and Sue Dale Tunnicliffe

Abstract

Most historians of science, sociologists of science, philosophers of science and science educators now accept that there is no such thing as 'the scientific method'. We explore the implications of this view of the nature of science for biology education in particular. Accepting that there is no single way of investigating and describing the world scientifically presents both challenges and opportunities, especially when teaching biology. We illustrate these opportunities by suggesting fresh approaches to the teaching of drawing in biology, the teaching of classification and the teaching of human biology
