  • Das Werk basiert auf den Beiträgen zu der Tagung Biologiedidaktische Vorstellungsforschung: Zukunftsweisende Praxis, die im März 2019 in Berlin stattfand. Hier wurden innovative Forschungsansätze im Bereich Vorstellung und Theorie, Kompetenz, Diagnose sowie Intervention präsentiert und diskutiert. Die Herausgeber mchten mit dem Werk eine weiterführende Debatte über theoretische und methodische Ansätze in der Vorstellungsforschung  anstoßen, auch mit dem Ziel, Implikationen für die Praxis abzuleiten. 

  • The book takes a closer look at the theoretical and empirical basis for a competence-based view of models and modeling in science learning and science education research. Current thinking about models and modeling is reflected. The focus lies on the development of modeling competence in science education, and on philosophical aspects, including perspectives on nature of science. The book explores, interprets, and discusses models and modeling from the perspective of different theoretical frameworks and empirical results. The extent to which these frameworks can be integrated into a competence-based approach for science education is discussed. In addition, the book provides practical guidance by outlining evidence-based approaches to diagnosing and promoting modeling competence. The aim is to convey a strong understanding of models and modeling for professions such as teacher educators, science education researchers, teachers, and scientists. Different methods for the diagnosis and assessment of modeling competence are presented and discussed with regard to their potential and limitations. The book provides evidence-based ideas about how teachers can be supported in teaching with models and modeling implementing a competence-based approach and, thus, how students can develop their modeling competence. Based on the findings, research challenges for the future are identified.
