Discipline-based Educational Research

Professor Carl Wieman (Stanford) is a physicist, Nobel laureate and educational researcher – a powerful combination for learning and teaching in science and mathematics.

Professor Wieman recently presented at the on Improving how universities teach – a scientific approach at the inaugural Times Higher Education (THE) Teaching Excellence Summit in Glasgow. Prof Wieman makes a compelling argument for evidence-based practice and the value of discipline-based educational research which is in the best position to make a real difference to university teaching practice.
