Science and Technology Education

The Science and Technology Education Research Group is particularly concerned with the teaching and learning of science and technology (as broadly understood). Teaching and learning are the key foci of a faculty of education, and it is now widely recognised that although much research on learning or teaching in general terms can inform educational practice, each curriculum area has its own specific concerns, nature, challenges, etc., due to how different disciplines being represented in curriculum interact with general educational problems. Science and technology are recognised as important curriculum areas in most national education systems.
