Outreach

Welcome!

As part of my service to communities and for recruitment and sharing relating to my research, I offer seminars and workshops for professionals involved in science and technology education, as described here. Having worked as a secondary school teacher of science (1977-88), school district science education consultant (1988-92) and professor of science education (1997-2018), I can talk about many related topics. However, as indicated in my resumé, I currently emphasize – largely through STEPWISE‘ – socio-political actions to address harms linked to influences of powerful people (e.g., financiers) and organizations (e.g., corporations) on fields of science and technology and their educational counterparts (elaborated here). Particularly for workshops, I often collaborate with members of my research team – including the two PhD students shown at right below a video of one my seminar presentations. If you are interested in inviting me to address any of the possible topics below or others you suggest, email me at: larry.bencze@utoronto.ca.
