Submission status
Submission deadline

The global economy is changing, with jobs disappearing due to automation and others emerging as a result of technological advances and innovations. This new reality is changing the way students need to learn, connect, interact, and interpret the world around them. The skills developed by students through STEM education — from problem solving and creativity, to teamwork and digital literacy — provide them with the foundation to adapt and thrive in this fast changing world.

This Collection invites research and review articles that provide fresh perspectives on all aspects of STEM teaching, learning, and assessment. We welcome research both empirical and conceptual from all areas of the social and behavioural sciences. Perspectives are encouraged from all geographic regions and learning contexts, including day care, pre-k, kindergarten, primary, elementary, secondary, vocational, higher education, teacher training colleges, and open and distance education.

Research is invited on key themes, including but not limited to:

  • Assessing STEM learning outcomes and impact
  • Case studies of best practice
  • Curriculum design and development
  • Entrepreneurship, industry links and partnerships to support STEM education
  • Innovative learning environments
  • Integration of STEM with other disciplines (e.g. arts and humanities; ASTEM)
  • International perspectives and trends
  • Learning and assessment
  • New innovations and practices to support teaching, learning and assessment
  • Pedagogical approaches
  • Perspective on STEM education of the future
  • Sociocultural factors and STEM
  • STEM education policy
  • Strategies to enhance student engagement in STEM learning
  • Teacher training and education
  • Teaching approaches, strategies, activities, resources
  • Vocational STEM training
