The Journal of Disciplinary and Interdisciplinary Science Education Research (DISER) announces a special issue on designing, developing and teaching project-based learning (PBL) to promote disciplinary and interdisciplinary science education. Globally, PBL has gained prominence as a potential instructional perspective to support learners in developing deeper and more usable knowledge as well as promote learner's social and emotional learning. 

CREATE director, Joe Krajcik, has been asked to be the Lead Guest Editor, along with colleagues Rui Wei and Lei Wang, both from Beijing Normal University, China, where Dr. Krajcik is also a Guest Professor.

Authors selected to develop full papers will present their papers at the International Forum for Science Education sponsored by the International Institute on Science Education Research at Beijing Normal University in Winter or Spring 2021. 

DISER promotes scholarship in education within and across science disciplines. DISER publishes original empirical, conceptual and policy studies reflecting the latest developments in science education from disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. DISER bridges the divide and facilitates dialogue between formal and informal, disciplinary and interdisciplinary, K-12 and post-secondary, as well as English-speaking and non-English speaking country science education.
