Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Education
  • Pedagogy
  • Mathematics education

Brian Hand spends much of his time researching Mathematics education, Pedagogy, Science education, Teaching method and Heuristics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Meaning and Perception. His research on Pedagogy focuses in particular on Nature of Science.

His Science education research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Argumentation theory and Literacy. His research integrates issues of Social science education, Science, technology, society and environment education, Library science, Social science and Learning sciences in his study of Literacy. His work deals with themes such as Secondary education, Professional development, Affect and National Science Education Standards, which intersect with Teaching method.

His most cited work include:

  • Examining the literacy component of science literacy: 25 years of language arts and science research (399 citations)
  • Using the science writing heuristic as a tool for learning from laboratory investigations in secondary science (286 citations)
  • Using a Science Writing Heuristic to enhance learning outcomes from laboratory activities in seventh-grade science: quantitative and qualitative aspects (184 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Mathematics education, Science education, Pedagogy, Teaching method and Scientific literacy. The concepts of his Mathematics education study are interwoven with issues in Argument and Heuristic. The Science education study combines topics in areas such as Educational research, Argumentative and Argumentation theory.

In general Pedagogy study, his work on Literacy, Constructivist teaching methods, Science, technology, society and environment education and Learning sciences often relates to the realm of Political science, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His work on Teaching and learning center as part of general Teaching method study is frequently linked to Achievement test, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Scientific literacy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Academic achievement and Nature of Science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mathematics education (74.05%)
  • Science education (47.47%)
  • Pedagogy (44.94%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Mathematics education (74.05%)
  • Science education (47.47%)
  • Pedagogy (44.94%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Brian Hand mostly deals with Mathematics education, Science education, Pedagogy, Argument and Critical thinking. The various areas that Brian Hand examines in his Mathematics education study include Literacy and Argumentation theory. His work in the fields of Science education, such as Science learning, intersects with other areas such as Class.

His work on Student learning and Learning sciences as part of general Pedagogy research is frequently linked to Perspective and Treatment and control groups, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Argument research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Critical thinking skills and Student centered. His research in Critical thinking intersects with topics in Cognitive psychology, Turkish, Science writing, Heuristic and Learning environment.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Examining the Use of Talk and Writing for Students' Development of Scientific Conceptual Knowledge Through Constructing and Critiquing Arguments (42 citations)
  • Examining Elementary Students' Development of Oral and Written Argumentation Practices through Argument-Based Inquiry. (42 citations)
  • Coming to Know More Through and From Writing (30 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Education
  • Pedagogy
  • Mathematics education

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Mathematics education, Pedagogy, Science education, Argumentation theory and Argument. His study in the fields of Teaching method, Standardized test and Learning sciences under the domain of Mathematics education overlaps with other disciplines such as Subject areas. He has researched Standardized test in several fields, including Heuristic and Science writing.

His study in the field of Learning theory and Language assessment also crosses realms of Learner autonomy and Language pedagogy. The Science instruction research Brian Hand does as part of his general Science education study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Class, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Argumentation theory research also works with subjects such as

  • Grounded theory and related Knowledge level, Semi-structured interview, Trace, Sociology of scientific knowledge and Faculty development,
  • Multimethodology and related Scientific literacy and Philosophy of science.
