epiSTEME 5: Fifth International Conference to review research on Science,Technology and Mathematics Education

  • Dates: 7 - 11 January 2013
  • Venue: Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (TIFR), Mumbai, India
  • Title: Fifth International Conference to review research on Science,Technology and Mathematics Education
  • Website: http://episteme5.hbcse.tifr.res.in/

The Conference, epiSTEME-5, is the fifth in a series of biennial conferences aimed at reviewing research conducted world-wide in science, technology and mathematics education. It is being organised by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, a National Centre of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India.
Science, technology and mathematics education (STME) have, in recent decades, emerged as lively new research areas. This research, inspired by issues of learning and teaching, has clear uniting themes in the cognitive, pedagogical, historical, philosophical and socio-cultural aspects of the sciences. The epiSTEME conferences occupy a unique position among conferences and bring together researchers in these foundational areas as well as from the domains of science, design and technology and mathematics education. Conference epiSTEME-5 continues this tradition of interdisciplinary exchange.
The name epiSTEME connotes, at one level, a systematic study of knowledge, while as an acronym it suggests a meta-view of science, technology and mathematics education. The previous epiSTEME conferences, episteme-1 in 2004, episteme-2 in 2007, episteme-3 2009 and episteme-4 in 2011, have catalyzed collaborative programmes among researchers and educational practitioners in India and abroad. Within India, they have helped to initiate and foster linkages between theory, empirical research and the activities of grassroot organizations.
This time, we are also co-hosting the 20th International Conference on Conceptual Structures (ICCS), from January 10-12, 2013. The special theme for this year will be “Conceptual Structures for Education Research”. We plan to organize one day of common sessions to facilitate exchange of ideas addressing the two research communities during the epiSTEME 5.

Structure of the conference

Four broad strands of research that impact STME will form the core of epiSTEME-5. Themes have been identified under each strand to reflect active research topics and areas of interest. Leading scholars will be invited to give overviews of some of the themes within each strand. Paper and poster sessions will complement the review talks. Pre- and post- conference workshops are being planned, the details of which will be announced later on the conference website. The strands and proposed themes are:

Strand 1. Historical, philosophical and socio-cultural studies of STM implications for education

  • History and Philosophy of STM
  • Socio-cultural and gender issues in STM
  • Science and Technology Studies
  • Public understanding of and participation in STM

Strand 2. Cognitive and affective studies of STME

  • Visuo-spatial thinking
  • Knowledge representation and Conceptual Structures
  • Language and learning
  • Problem solving, learning and reasoning
  • Model based reasoning

Strand 3. Curriculum and pedagogical studies in STM

  • Assessment and evaluation
  • Classroom interaction and discourse
  • Affective aspects of learning
  • Teacher professional development
  • Educational initiatives and innovations

Strand 4: Information and Communication Technologies in STME

  • Open Education Resources
  • Online and asynchronous learning
  • Visualization of models and data
  • Open and Citizen science initiatives

Invited Review Speakers (confirmed)

  • Chun-Yen CHANG, NTNU, Taiwan
  • Sugra Chunawala, Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, TIFR, India
  • Sibel Erduran, Bristol University, UK

Submissions can be made online in the form of full papers of 6-8 pages in length (maximum of 8 pages including references). Details and a template for submission may be downloaded from the conference webpage.
All submissions go through a double-blind review process. Accepted papers are published in the Conference Proceedings which would be distributed during the conference and can also be downloaded from the conference website. Review talks along with the discussions will be published in a series of volumes called The epiSTEME Reviews after the conference.
To enable a blind review process, authors' names, contact details and title of the paper must be provided separately, and must not be included in the papers. There are two modes of presentation at the Conference: Oral and Poster. The academic committee will assign accepted submissions to one of the two modes of presentation.
