Teaching and History of Sciences

The GTHS is characterized by its interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary dimension, intending to promote the cooperation of researchers from various faculties of UC and other universities, allowing the development of scientific studies on rich primary fonts of the History of Science in Portugal. The Group also focuses its work on Teaching and Teachers Education, emphasizing didactic and technological aspects. A critical point of the current Portuguese education system is the lack of adequate scientific and pedagogical preparation of many already in-service teachers. In this area the GTHS will continue to develop studies that promote the quality of science teaching, aiming also at an intervention in science communication in all kinds of environments, starting with basic and secondary school but going on to society at large
