My team of graduate students & teachers and I study science education that promotes - via 'STEPWISE - civic sociopolitical actions to increase social justice & ecological wellbeing. New: STS Uses in Science Education.

Curriculum Vitae
Along with a summary of my education and work background, this page lists many of my publications in science education - which were greatly co-related with my former university-based teaching. New: See latest issue of our civic action journal, JASTE.
Related to my scholarship, I can conduct -
by invitation - seminars and workshops (with coverage for travel & accommodation costs). New: Rethinking Curriculum.


Many of these resources relate to STEPWISE,
which prioritizes socioeconomic critiques and actions regarding STSE relationships - as in the video at left (and here). New: Science Education for Civic Action, a STEPWISE teacher resource book - which includes Ban the Dust!, a graphic novel about a social-technical struggle in Qu├ębec City.
