The overarching goal of ISEC’s research programme is to improve science and engineering education through research. This is done through explorative and intervention-based studies that include the development, implementation, and impact evaluation of curriculum materials, pedagogical tools and instructional strategies.
Our vision is framed around three main goals:
- To contribute towards the quality of science and engineering education in schools and the university through the design, implementation and evaluation of theory-informed and evidence-based curriculum materials
- To provide university instructors and school teachers with professional training that aims to transform the teaching and learning of science and engineering and enhance students’ academic achievement
- To support the engagement of students and the general public with science and engineering in formal (e.g., university, school) and informal learning settings (e.g., science centers and museums)
Areas of research interest and expertise include: training of teaching assistants in physics, innovative teaching practices in mathematics, the use of augmented and virtual reality in science, interdisciplinary approaches to teaching, the use of Artificial Intelligence in science education, as well as social, cultural, and gender issues in science.
