Abstract

The Internet provides an excellent resource for students, teachers, and others to explore current science. In particular, it provides a vehicle for developing technology-rich courses that provide students with great autonomy in selecting and carrying out learning. Course development is a very complex endeavor linking subject matter, developmentally appropriate learning processes, available resources, technology, time, and assessment techniques. Less obvious, but of equal importance, is the interaction of teacher beliefs and design decisions. Development proceeds in a context of implicit and explicit beliefs about the nature of science, learning, and curriculum. Astronomy provided the context for illustrating the ways that one teacher's beliefs about science, learning, and curriculum were embedded in the development of a web-based high school course.
