WWW Site for John Lawrence Bencze, Associate Professor, Science Education, OISE/University of Toronto


This page provides you with a brief description of my teaching responsibilities. Much of my teaching is based on 'STEPWISE' and Constructivist Teaching & Learning. In addition to believing that each student must be given opportunities to develop comprehensive and deep literacy, I think they also need to be encouraged and enabled to use their literacy in ways that benefit other people and our living and non-living environments - which are facing many challenges. To support teaching, I provide many resources and conduct research and development - a summary of which is provided in my résumé. Please contact me if you would like to discuss anything you find here. Note: I am moving towards retirement in 2018 and now will only teach one course (CTL 1223) in Fall 2017.
Graduate Studies Courses

CTL 1223: Activist Science & Technology Education.
