SANTOS, Simone Barreto et al. The History of Science and Technology discipline: contributions to chemistry teachers' education and training. Educ. quím [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.1, pp.71-81. ISSN 0187-893X.

This study aims to examine how structured the discipline of History of Science and Technology in the faculty of Chemistry, Faculty of Engineering - FIQ of the Universidad Nacional del Litoral - Santa Fe, Argentina, and how the teacher of the subject has adequate knowledge of History and Philosophy of Science for the teaching of this subject. It is emphasized that the course does not offer a discipline that studies the "History and Philosophy of Chemistry". The study presents a qualitative research approach in the framework, among those cited, referencing different authors Argentines and Brazilians. The data were collected from teachers using a semi-structured interview, course documentation and analytical program. The results obtained so far show the need to rethink the discipline by assigning a greater emphasis on science epistemological knowledge. The inclusion of aspects of History and Philosophy of Science can be considered as a key integrator to understand the specific contents of the subject to be taught and is one of the possible ways to improve the understanding of the nature of science. This study can help in discussions and curricular experiences of other universities including the discipline of History of Science and / or Chemistry in its curriculum.

Palabras llave : history of science; teacher training; historical knowledge; philosophical and epistemological of chemistry.
