DIDACTICS OF SCIENCES: REGIONS, GROUPS AND RESEARCH LINES IN THE COUNTRY BETWEEN 2003-2012
Abstract. This research has as scope the verification of which are the main groups, lines of research and regions that worked with Didactics of the Sciences in Brazil between 2003-2012. For that, a study with qualitative approach, exploratory purposes, case study method and documentary collection was carried out. The data were collected on the website of the Directory of Research Groups in Brazil of the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), using the keyword "didactics of science". It was verified that only two research groups dedicate themselves specifically to Science Didactics studies and that the two are in the Northeast Region. In addition, we identified seven lines of research focused on the production of knowledge about Science Didactics. It was concluded that this subarea of Education in Sciences has a great potential of growth in the country, since the dedication to the epistemological studies on the teaching phenomena still has to be consolidated in Brazil.
