Contemporary Approaches to Research in Mathematics, Science, Health and Environmental Education Symposium
Each year the Contemporary Approaches to Research in Mathematics, Science, Health and Environmental Education Symposium focuses on practical and theoretical aspects of a range of research methodologies. They follow the highly successful symposia held annually from 1993 to 2005, in which methodological techniques and issues – such as cross-cultural perspectives, activity theory, capturing complexity, classroom video analysis, quantitative methods, and interviewing – were discussed in a lively, informal setting.
STEM Education Forum
The STEM education forum provides an opportunity for science and mathematics educators to critically examine current trends in interdisciplinary and disciplinary STEM Education, challenges associated with crossing boundaries between the STEM disciplines, issues of policy and practice, inclusion/exclusion, and opportunities to make STEM a conduit for productive curriculum change.
The Visual in Education Research Symposium
In education research, the visual is emerging as central to a variety of methodologies dealing with ethnographies, with spatial relations, with capture of environments, and with cognition. In this symposium, researchers from Deakin and other institutions who are working in this visual field presented ‘provocations’ to stimulate discussion on each of these perspectives. The intention was to explore the ways in which these differing approaches to the visual might speak to each other in productive ways.This symposium was presented by STEME in conjunction with The Centre for Research in Educational Futures and Innovation (CREFI; now renamed Research for Educational Impact (REDI)) in October 2012.
