For a science curriculum that 'matters'

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Most of what we experience as salient in education is a matter of curriculum; however, decisions on content and delivery of science curricula are often conflicted between apparently irreconcilable purposes. This paper outlines the key features of a science curriculum as heterotopia, that is, as a space for enacting multiple and diverse sense-experiences. Moving beyond the neoliberal logic of expanding freedom of choice, it is a science curriculum that works in the humanistic sense of transforming the kinds of humans we desire to be, overcoming the instrumental mission of science education, for a science curriculum that truly matters.
