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, graduate students and I use action research to learn more about promoting informed civic sociopolitical actions in science/STEM education to overcome harms in relationships among fields of science & technology and societies & environments (STSE) – which, as George Monbiot contends in the video at right/below, appear largely due to hegemonic influences of capitalists over most entities on earth. Broadly, STEPWISE pedagogy is meant, in part, to overcome problems from hegemonic inquiry-based learning and from reductionist, de-problematized, STEM education movements. This work can be shared through our outreach and publication programmes.
