I. Drymiotou, PhD

PhD student

I am a PhD Candidate in a double PhD programme in Science Education between the University of Cyprus and the University of Groningen. My research is associated with theoretical and empirical explorations of students’ self-views in relation to science, focusing on STEM career aspirations and the development of career-oriented teaching-learning materials as a mechanism for enhancing students’ interest in STEM. 

I hold a Bachelor degree in Primary Education from the National University of Athens (2011) and a Masters in Educational Technology from the University of Manchester (2012). My master’s thesis focused on pupils’ views towards collaborative learning through Web 2.0 technologies used in school. Following this master’s degree, I worked as a Comenius Teaching Assistant in Bologna (2013-2014) in three primary schools and the year after as a researcher at the Centre for the Advancement of Research and Development in Educational Technology (CARDET) in Cyprus (2014-2015). In 2015, I started working as a research assistant for a three-year European funded project at the Learning in Science Group (LSG) at the University of Cyprus the coordinated by Prof. Constantinos P. Constantinou. In 2017 I received a second Master’s in Science Education from the University of Cyprus (2017) and the topic of her thesis concerned an enhancement of students’ interest in science and awareness of STEM careers using career-based scenarios. Immediately after, I expanded on this topic starting a PhD at the University of Cyprus as a double degree agreement with the University of Groningen.
