Educational Research

The Educational Research Group conducts research and scholarship into teaching and learning across the Environment, Earth and Ecosystem Sciences. 

Distance education is a perennial focus, with many of our educational research and scholarship projects supported by eSTEeM, the Open University’s centre for STEM pedagogy. However, our work impacts on all modes of STEM education and extends into other disciplines as well.  Several of our projects focus on enhancing, enabling and evaluating fieldwork, in both virtual and outdoor environments.
