BERA Project Funded

bera-logoDr Geraldine Mooney-Simmie and Professor Sibel Erduran will participate in a project commissioned by the British Educational Research Association and entitled "Reviewing the potential and challenges of developing STEAM education through creative pedagogies for 21st learning: how can school curricula be broadened towards a more responsive, dynamic and inclusive form of education?”  The project will be led by University of Aberdeen in Scotland and will bring together educators, anthropologists and music educators from Scotland, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. The partners will include dance and arts educators from a range of contexts including Argentina, USA, Italy, Canada and Estonia. The team will explore  the changing conceptualization of science and arts, and the implications for science education. The group will advise BERA on future research priorities and will seek out engagement from a number of different stakeholders in the educational, arts and STEM communities.
