    We engage in research related to pedagogy and learning across the curriculum subjects within STEAM contexts. The various projects bring together academics and practitioners working on a range of learning and pedagogic issues in order to facilitate change in practice in schools, colleges and higher education through evidence based-research and/or policy developments at local, regional or national levels.

    We aim to:

    • Undertake and promote high quality research and scholarship in the field of STEAM pedagogy and learning
    • Disseminate its research findings widely, through various means, including publications, electronic media, conferences and seminars
    • Develop both critical and creative perspectives within STEAM
    • Promote research focused on both practice and learning
    • Seek funding for research from a wide range of sources
    • Facilitate a research and discussion forum that will meet regularly throughout the academic year
    • Liaise with other research groups both within the department and beyond
    • Develop active networks both nationally and internationally

Some of the projects are externally funded (by the Educational Endowment Fund; Primary Science Teaching Trust, National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching Mathematics (NCETM) and DIAWA for example. Others are part funded by the University.

  • Research group activities

    These are activities are (roughly) planned to complement (occur in-between) the Research Circle events. Although the exact content of the sessions is not confirmed in some cases, ALL the dates and times are agreed and will support some aspect of STEAM research activity.
