The Centre for Research in Education in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (CRESTEM) brings together a group of researchers who are interested in exploring formal and informal practices of teaching, learning and engagement in diverse contexts of STEM education.
We have a strong tradition of collaborating with young people, teachers, educators in out-of-school settings, and policy makers, both nationally and internationally. Our research draws from social science, psychological and critical perspectives to advance theory and make sense of data collected with a range of different empirical methods.
Our work is closely aligned with the cross-school themes ‘Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment’, ‘Professionalism and Workplace Practice’ and ‘Diversity, Inclusion and Social Justice’ and organised around three programmes of research and knowledge exchange:
- Learning: knowledge, beliefs and values
- Social justice: inclusion, difference and equity
- Professional practice and policy: curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.
