The development of science is the process of continuously re-constructing the model of nature. The previous study indicates that students’ learning and construction of science knowledge corresponds to the evolution of humans’ science concepts [1, 2, 3]. Therefore, from the perspective of scientific epistemology, course design based on real research literature is one of the useful ways of inquiry-based teaching or problem-based teaching.
