Call for Papers

“Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).” Interdisciplinary, integrated education has become an international trend all over the world. Strengthening students’ STEM literacy, interest in STEM, practical knowledge and experience of STEM, and STEM innovative ability through new STEM courses, and encouraging students to invest in science and technology-related careers is an important way to be competitive in New Asia.

Developing and implementing suitable assessment methods and techniques in STEM education is an important and growing issue. By collecting and analyzing students’ learning behavior in STEM courses, teachers and policymakers can appropriately modify STEM teaching objectives, content, and activities. Students can also correct their learning mistakes and increase learning motivation and learning achievements. However, the development of STEM courses in Asian countries is still in its infancy. The existing relevant practical research is also quite limited. As a result, this special issue will focus on STEM curriculum development, teaching, assessment, and other related topics to jointly communicate and stimulate innovative ideas for academic research. 

Potential topics include:

  • Perspectives on STEM in education
  • Transdisciplinary learning in STEM
  • Research-based practices for engaging students in STEM Learning
  • Digital technologies/learning spaces facilitating STEM Learning
  • School-industry-community partnerships in STEM
  • STEM Teacher Education and Professional Learning
  • Integrated pedagogical approaches to STEM
  • Policy and leadership for improving STEM
  • Assessment and evaluation of STEM outcomes
  • STEM as critical literacy
  • Diverse learners in STEM
  • STEM and environmental sustainability
