Transformative Science Teaching to Catalyze Alternative Futures

April 9, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm EDT

Daniel Morales Doyle presentation titled: Transformative Science Teaching to Catalyze Alternative Futures.

Transformative science teaching critiques mainstream models of science education for promoting the content areas and prioritizing their big ideas while failing to confront the role of science in making society inequitable and unsustainable. This presentation will share research and classroom examples to illustrate how science education might instead act as a catalyst for alternative futures. Transformative science teaching encourages students to study how scientific ideas and practices might be useful in movements for social and environmental justice. Science education as a catalyst for change positions students as transformative intellectuals who are capable of changing science, while also using science to change the world.

In-person event with light refreshments provided. A Zoom option will be offered (registration required).

Speaker presentations will be recorded and and made available on the CREATE for STEM Institute YouTube channel and Community website.


Daniel Morales-Doyle is an associate professor of science education in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Illinois Chicago. His work focuses on the sociopolitical dimensions of science curriculum, teaching, and teacher education. He was a high school teacher in the Chicago Public Schools for more than a decade before coming to UIC.
