Breaking tradition with scientific learning
The original publication is available at http://www.sajs.co.za/
Pathways to scientific teaching is a compilation of previously published, two-paged articles in Frontiers in ecology and the environment, a publication of the Ecological Society of America. In 2004, this publication instituted a new education section, entitled Pathways to scientific teaching, in response to a challenge given to professional societies to stress the need for reform in education. The idea behind this reform is that science should be taught as rigorously as it is practiced.
