Special Issue "Research and Innovation in STEM Education"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 October 2023 | Viewed by 8335
Bridging the gap between school and university is one of the main challenges we have to address in education research. Education quality requires that education is based on empirical evidence, while at the same time ensuring that education research addresses the needs and problems of the classroom. An example of the scarce transfer of knowledge in education is represented by the STEM education model. This emerging approach to education has permeated different education systems, as is the case in Spain. However, teachers do not have the necessary training and experience to effectively implement integrated teaching and learning processes. thus, the main aim of this Special Issue is to bring together knowledge on the application and effectiveness of teaching–learning models that integrate STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) areas; teacher training in STEM education; and curriculum analysis. Therefore, this monograph is open to the participation of teachers, professors and researchers who carry out their teaching and/or research work in early childhood education, primary education, secondary education or university.
Manuscripts with the following focuses are welcome:
- Systematic reviews that bring together knowledge obtained on a specific topic related to the STEM education model.
- Educational innovations focused on STEM education and the rigorous evaluation of their impact.
- Articles of a theoretical or empirical nature that advance the theoretical and practical development of the STEM educational approach.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
