A conversation with Prof. Jonathan Osborne

Which aspects of science are most relevant to you, if you’re not planning to be a scientist? What knowledge is likely to be valuable and useful for day-to-day life? In this episode, we talk with Prof. Jonathan Osborne about useful and reliable knowledge, and about the importance of teaching and learning about procedural and epistemic aspects of scientific inquiry. Prof. Osborne is Kamalachari Professor of Science Education at Stanford University, and the Chair of the OECD PISA Science Expert Group.
