Methodological Approaches to STEM Education Research Volume 1

This book addresses the changing nature of the methodologies that underpin research in mathematics, science, health and environmental education. This is a constantly shifting landscape that educational researchers need to engage with in order for research to continue to impact educational practice. The novelty of this book in the context of the existing publishing landscape is that it has a singular focus on methodology and methods, not in service of research findings but as something worth considering in itself, bringing methodology to the forefront of educational research.

This book is part of a series. View the full series, "Contemporary Approaches to Research in STEM Education", here.


Peta J. White is a Senior Lecturer in Science and Environmental Education at Deakin University, Australia. She gained her PhD in Saskatchewan, Canada, where she focused on learning to live sustainably which became a platform from which to educate future teachers. Her current research interests include science and biology education, sustainability, climate change and environmental education, and collaborative/activist methodologies.

Russell Tytler is Alfred Deakin Professor and Chair in Science Education at Deakin University, Australia. He has researched and written extensively on student learning and reasoning in science. He researches and writes on student engagement with science and mathematics, school-community partnerships, and STEM curriculum policy and practice. He is widely published, and has been chief investigator on a range of Australian Research Council research projects.

Joseph Ferguson is an educational researcher and teacher educator at Deakin University, Australia, interested in investigating the various manifestations of reasoning in the science classroom. His work particularly explores the power of video-based methodologies, informed by film theory and philosophy, to maximise the potential of such research to support teachers and students in their creative teaching and learning of science.

John Cripps Clark teaches and researches in science communication, science education and cultural-historical activity theories at Deakin University, Australia. His current projects are in STEM education, and he works with colleagues and teachers to develop effective STEM pedagogies, school gardens, visual-linguistic reasoning, and the learning experience of online students.
