Re-imagining futures in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics Education

 

The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education (STEME) Research Group is dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of STEME through research into innovative educational practices.

In a time of rapid growth in knowledge, and in its applications and implications, we aim to develop a deeper strategic knowledge of STEME. We support innovation and change around key contemporary issues in STEME, and hope to make a difference in the preparedness of both children and professionals alike to engage with and respond to these issues. 

Our research broadly asks questions relating to:

  • The nature of teaching and learning
  • Student perceptions and engagement
  • Capturing classroom practice
  • Teacher learning and innovation
  • Partnerships supporting school and teacher practice
  • Education for sustainability and social justice
  • Rural education and equity
  • Mathematical reasoning
