Prospect and Retrospect of the Korean Association for Research in Science Education, Assuming the toga viritis
It is a great pleasure to talk all of you, members of the Korean Association for Research in Science Education9KARSE) and world famous science educators, together here in Korea. It is an honourable thing that I have the opportunity to make the keynote address on the 20th anniversary of KARSE as on of the foundation members.
I know some of senior members here are the living withnesses to the change of KARSE from the foundation till today. KARSE has been changed much and developed continuously for 20 years, thanks to your valuabel efforts and sacrifices. I acknowledge your favours courteously on behalf of KARSE. And here are junior members, too, who contribute to the development of KARSE keeping going on research works. The future of KARSE depends upon you. I hope you will have academic achievements with the development of KARSE which has tied seniors and juniors together to encourage each other for the academic growth.
KARSE was founded in 1976 and developed continuously publishing academic journals since 1978. Now we stand on the historical point of KARES. It is a meaningful job to think over then idea and background of the foundatiion of KARSE tracing the history, at this 20th anniversay day. I hope we will be able to realise the roles and tasks of our own for the prospective future through the retrospection.
