Against Chronological Accounts of the History of Science

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingMeeting abstract (Book)

Abstract

This contribution criticizes traditional chronological teaching, based on recent studies by Kinchin that show how linear computer presentations barely contribute to the student's understanding of the subject matter. I introduce non-linearity in teaching history, in particular in teaching history of science, as an alternative to standard didactics.
