Welcome to my website, where you can learn about my research & publication programme and gain open-access to related teaching & learning resources. In my ‘STEPWISE’ project, with its provocative history and rationale, graduate students and I use action research to learn more about science/STEM educators’ efforts to promote informed civic sociopolitical actions to overcome harms in STSE relationships – which, as George Monbiot contends in the video at right/below, appear largely due to self-serving influences of elite people & groups over most entities on earth. STEPWISE aims to overcome at least two major influences of neoliberalism on science/STEM education; that is, Inquiry-based Learning & Reductive, De-politicized STEM Education movements. This work is shared through our outreach and publication programmes.
