Re-imagining futures in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics Education
The Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Environmental Education (STEME) research group operates within a strong and vibrant educational research culture at Deakin, aligned with the Centre for Research for Educational Impact (REDI). Education at Deakin is ranked 5th in Australia and 30th in the world (QS Index).
Our research is intensely practice-focused, engaging with teachers, school and education systems to improve teacher learning and practice, student engagement and capability, and to find solutions for system enhancement.
STEME researchers have been singularly productive with government and industry funding and with Australian Research Council (ARC) grants, and have a history of influence on STEM curriculum and policy at state, national and international levels.
We have a range of innovative professional learning programs for teachers, and an active program at the doctorate and masters level.
