Methodological Approaches to STEM Education Research Volume 2
The COVID-19 pandemic has likely changed the mathematics, health and environmental education research landscape in profound and long-lasting ways. As such, more than ever, there is a need to creatively and critically think about how we design research and for what purposes. This necessitates a considered and robust discussion about educational research theory, method, and methodology to ensure that our research continues to impact practice in valuable ways. This book maps out some of these key challenges and opportunities as we collectively enter a post-COVID-19 world in which method and methodology need to be appreciated as much as research findings. Topics explored here range from big-picture issues in STEM Education research, through perspectives on design-based research, to questions of analysis, complexity, the Delphi method, and ethical dilemmas.

Russell Tytler is Alfred Deakin Professor and Chair in Science Education at Deakin University, Australia. He has researched and written extensively on student learning and reasoning in science. His interest in the role of representation as a multimodal language for reasoning in science extends to pedagogy and teacher learning. He is widely published and has been chief investigator on a range of Australian Research Council and other research projects.
Joseph Ferguson, is an educational researcher and teacher educator at Deakin University, Australia, working in science and environmental education. He is interested in exploring reasoning inside and outside the classroom, in particular in its creative forms.
John Cripps Clark, teaches and researches in science communication, science education and cultural-historical activity theories. His most recent projects have been in STEM education, working with colleagues and teachers to develop various pedagogies. He has used Vygotsky’s method of dual stimulation to teach and understand digital literacy and primary science teaching, and is passionate about improving the learning experiences of off-campus students.
