We invite you to consider contributing to a Special Issue of Education Science.
Special issue: “STEM Practices in Informal Education Spaces”
Guest editors: Seamus Delaney and Linda Hobbs
Some possible key questions considered for this Special Issue:
- What education values and contributions occur outside of the formal education setting?
- How can teachers engage with STEM practice, learning and teaching in ways that occur outside of their formal classrooms?
- How can teaching and learning be incorporated into non-school settings, such as science, maths and technology learning centres and museums, or into outreach and extracurricular programs based inside or outside the university or industrial sector settings?
- How can policy influence education in informal STEM settings? What is needed to capture the regulatory requirements around how teachers approach teaching science, maths and technology?
- What practices can encourage the engagement of teachers with citizen science initiatives, socio-scientific issues and activism, such as in energy technology, climate change and sustainable development?
