Assessing Astronomy Students’ Views About The Nature Of Science, Jennifer Blue
SoTL Commons Conference
For this project, I analyze papers and essays from students in a general education course, Observational Foundations of Astronomy. Students were asked to construct arguments about whether ancient astronomers, who in many cases were also astrologers and priests, were scientists. I will present the results, with student definitions and examples. This should have implications for how we talk about science with our students across the curriculum.
