SciPol:Lux: Science Education, Innovation, and Policy in Modern Luxembourg

The SciPol:Lux study seeks to gain insights into the policy and curricular reform of science education in Luxembourg’s primary schools through an approach that integrates research in educational sciences with research in the history of education. Beginning with the premise that “science education” as a school discipline is the product of culturally shaped expectations, SciPol will be structured to examine the interface of international and national educational policy with local educational practice through the lens of primary school science education in Luxembourg (from 1920 through the present). Using Luxembourg as the context from which to examine global and local curriculum policies and reforms from a historical perspective, the methods put forth in this study will combine a historical analysis with an ethnographic approach to examine the lived practices in a local context. In the synergy of the two approaches, local analysis of historically shaped notions of science education can be integrated with a transnational global perspective. (PI: Christina Siry, 2014-2017)
