Industry Collaboration in the Development of Relevant Inquiry Tasks for Chemistry Education
This is an introduction to a educational design research study, with a goal of creating contextual and meaningful inquiry tasks for chemistry education. The problem analysis included the evaluation of the inquiry tasks described in the textbooks as well as the relevance of a university run chemistry learning environment ChemistryLab Gadolin. The inquiry tasks were designed at the Unit of Chemistry Teacher Education together with industry partners of the aforementioned teaching laboratory environment. The tasks are being further developed based on the relevancy theories.
