Lots of professors might not even know that people conduct research into science education, says Sandra Porter on her blog. Once she realized that, she also discovered that it was useless since she never saw the research; PubMed Central catalogs four relevant journals and the rest are subscription-based. “If we are ever to use science to help us teach science, if evidence-based teaching is ever to replace teaching by anecdote, we're going to need to share strategies and information, not lock them away,” blogs Porter.
