More about this group

The Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Science Education examines science education from interdisciplinary perspectives on science and education. The work of the Centre draws from “Science studies”, a group of disciplines that draw from history, philosophy, anthropology, linguistics, and sociology of science as well as cognitive psychology and artificial intelligence in an effort to understand the nature and practices of science.

The core aims of CISSE are:

  • To foster research collaborations among staff, researchers and doctoral students from across the University and beyond in shaping science education through interdisciplinary understanding of science and its contextualisations in science education.
  • To investigate how science education can be improved in and out of schooling through understranding and application of the epistemic, linguistic, psychological, historical and educational knowledge of science, including through the design and implementation of interventions that have interdisciplinary coherence.
  • To apply research outcomes to impact policy and practice of science education the extension of learning communities related to science through public engagement with science and sustainability of educational innovations derived from interdisciplinary frameworks.
Centre coordinator: Professor Sibel Erduran
