Special Issue Information
In recent years, active learning methods have been promoted as helping to foster a variety of learning outcomes, including but not limited to conceptual understanding, higher-order thinking skills, and interpersonal skills. While high school education and undergraduate education differ from each other in multiple ways, we believe researchers focused on these different educational levels can learn from each other’s findings and conclusions.
In this Special Issue, “Active Learning Pedagogies in High School and Undergraduate STEM Education”, we are interested in submissions from a variety of STEM disciplines and geographic regions. Active learning pedagogies may include but are not limited to case-based learning, challenge-based learning, experiential learning, inquiry-based learning, problem-based learning, and project-based learning.
This Special Issue of Education Sciences welcomes submissions of manuscripts from scholars focused on STEM education research in high school or undergraduate levels. Papers may be theoretical or empirical, involving formal or informal educational settings. All research methods will be considered, including quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, and design-based and action research.
Topics for this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:
- Evaluated programs, courses, or interventions;
- Interventions for improving student skills;
- Professional development of faculty;
- Reviews or meta-analyses of the literature;
- Validation of assessment instruments.
