ReMSTEP – Reconceptualising Mathematics and Science Teacher Education

Collaborative Reflective Experience and Practice in Education (CREPE) Faculty Research Group

2014-2016
Funding: $15818 Faculty of Arts & Education – Faculty Group Research
Researchers: Dr Peta White, Dr John Cripps Clark, Dr Leicha Bragg, Dr Esther Loong, Dr Josephine Lang, Dr Jo Raphael, Dr Bernadette Walker-Gibbs, Shelley Hannigan
Summary:  Although teaching and learning are at their heart social, at a tertiary level can be an isolating. As educators, we are constantly adapting our practices to meet new challenges. Reflective practice is crucial to continue developing our teaching practices.  The Collaborative Reflective Experience and Practice in Education (CREPE) Faculty Research Group consists of eight academics within the School of Education at Deakin University who are conducting initial teacher education and reflective practice research with self-study methodologies. The group collaborates to perform meta-analysis via conversations regarding their research in both face-to-face and online (asynchronous) media. This research builds the capacity of these researchers both individually and collaboratively as well as augmenting their reflective practices through multiple, smaller research projects.

Developing digital pedagogies in inquiry science through a cloud

2013-2016 ARC Linkage Project (LP130100233)
Partners:
 Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, STILE Education Pty Ltd
Funding: 2013 $42,277.50, 2014 $78,352.00, 2015 $73,776.50, 2016 $37,702.00
Researchers: Dr Peter HubberProf Russell Tytler, Dr Alan Finkel, Mr Peter Laver
Administering Organisation: Deakin University
Project Summary: This project will extend innovative, cloud-based teacher planning software in order to develop effective strategies for using digital resources in inquiry science. This project will work with a number of schools to investigate the development of an inquiry based digital pedagogy, and a professional learning approach utilising cloud-based, digital resources.
