Science education futures research: It’s about the present! Your move.

Peter Aubusson, Debra Panizzon

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialOtherpeer-review

Abstract

The paradox of future research is that it is about the present. To position future research as being primarily about anticipating, predicting or proposing alternative futures, misses its fundamental purpose. Certainly, it requires visions of varied alternative futures but a key purpose of the work is to understand the present; to see it with fresh eyes and an open mind informed by future perspectives.
