Thompson, Amreen Nasim; Talbot, Robert M.; Doughty, Leanne; Huvard, Hannah; Le, Paul; Hartley, Laurel; Boyer, Jeffrey – International Journal of STEM Education, 2020
Background: The success of the learning assistant (LA) model has largely been attributed to LA facilitation of active learning tasks. A deeper understanding of how LAs facilitate these tasks would inform LA training and support successful adoption of the LA model. Our investigation of LA actions during their interaction with students in the…

Reinholz, Daniel L.; Andrews, Tessa C. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2020
This commentary focuses on the difference between a theory of change and change theory, as it relates to systemic change projects in STEM higher education. A theory of change is project-specific and related to evaluation. It makes the underlying rationale of a project explicit, which supports planning, implementation, and assessment of the…

Wang, Hui-Hui; Charoenmuang, Mingla; Knobloch, Neil A.; Tormoehlen, Roger L. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2020
Background: Teachers' beliefs play an important role in how teachers think about how students learn, and how content should be organized and taught. Integrated STEM is pushing the boundaries of some of the traditional assumptions in education--disciplined-based courses, courses taught independently by teachers, standards and content-driven, and no…

Kaminski, Jennifer A.; Sloutsky, Vladimir M. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2020
There is anecdotal evidence that many elementary teachers integrate mathematics lessons and art activities by having students first make colorful, rich material that is subsequently used in an instructional activity. However, it is unclear whether such activities effectively promote learning and transfer of mathematical concepts. The goal of the…

Gale, Jessica; Alemdar, Meltem; Lingle, Jeremy; Newton, Sunni – International Journal of STEM Education, 2020
Increased emphasis on accountability in education reform and evidence-based practices underscores the need for research on the implementation of K-12 curricular innovations. However, detailed accounts of research examining fidelity of implementation for K-12 STEM curricula remain relatively scarce. This paper illustrates the application of one…

Yata, Chikahiko; Ohtani, Tadashi; Isobe, Masataka – International Journal of STEM Education, 2020
Background: School education should improve science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) ability not only in science and mathematics but also in technology and engineering. However, practice and research are being conducted without clear definitions and methods for STEM education. Moreover, the positioning and characteristics of the…

Leung, Allen – International Journal of STEM Education, 2020
This commentary aims to discuss an overarching boundary crossing framework under which integrated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) pedagogy can be conceptualized. Four potential learning dialogical processes for boundary crossing are presented and used as the main theoretical construct for the discussion. A proposal of an…

Barlow, Allyson; Brown, Shane – International Journal of STEM Education, 2020
Background: Within STEM education, research on instructional practices has focused on ways to increase student engagement and thereby reap the associated benefits of increased learning, persistence, and academic success. These meaningful-learning goals have been tied most specifically to cognitive engagement, a construct that is often difficult…

Peffer, Melanie E.; Ramezani, Niloofar – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Background: Achieving science literacy requires learning disciplinary knowledge, science practices, and development of sophisticated epistemological beliefs about the nature of science and science knowledge. Although sophisticated epistemological beliefs about science are important for attaining science literacy, students' beliefs are difficult to…
