RDST - Recherches en didactique des sciences et des technologies
RDST is the result of the merging together of the research journals Aster and Didaskalia. With two issues a year comprising a project and a variety of articles, RDST is establishing itself as a French-language reference journal for research into the didactics of science and technology. The journal contributes to the production of didactic knowledge by providing a place for scientific debate about the teaching and learning of science and technology (from nursery school to university), the dissemination of scientific and technological knowledge and teacher-training in these fields.
