Science and Technology Research in Pedagogy

Science and Technology Research in Pedagogy

This is a formally recognised Research Group in the University and is also one of the biggest in terms of members. Though it is based in the Department of Computing and Immersive Technologies, it has members from across the School and external to the School and was set up to bring together activities in innovative teaching practice that relates to teaching STEM subjects.
