The group seeks to understand how scientific education can be improved by the conjoint use of alternative educational strategies based on problem solving and creativity development, CTSA (science, technology, society, and environment) and CSC (science–art–body) approaches, and contemporary optics such as using art for education in science and embodied cognition.
Additionally, we seek to delve into the contemporary theoretical presuppositions of scientific education aiming for a sensible reason-oriented education that moves away from instrumental reason and incorporates the integral being and its vitality for science teaching.
