Cosmos Science City: Meet the Teacher

From the integration of technology and artificial intelligence to the growing emphasis on socio-emotional learning, the educational landscape is continually evolving towards a more equitable, adaptive, and learner-centric environment.

Join our panel of researchers as they discuss the future of STEM education, storytelling and other creative approaches to teaching, and the role of educational psychology across a range of education contexts. We’ll also learn about what’s involved in teaching scientists the art of communicating their research.

Our panellists

  • Dr Rebecca Marrone is a Lecturer of Learning Sciences and Development for the Centre for Change and Complexity in Learning at the University of South Australia. Her research is in the fields of creativity, educational psychology, and human and artificial cognition across varying educational contexts. 
  • Professor Giselle Rampersad is the Dean (Education) in the College of Science and Engineering at Flinders University with responsibility for STEM courses in Engineering, Science, Mathematics, Computer Science and Cybersecurity. Giselle’s research interests include STEM education, innovation skills and work integrated learning.
  • Dr Ben Lewis works with scientists at SAHMRI to help them explain what they do. From editing grant applications to running workshops on communication, writing and public speaking, Ben helps out anytime a scientist needs to tell someone else about their work.
  • Associate Professor Edward Palmer is Director, Unit of Digital Education and Training, School of Education at the University of Adelaide. Edward specialises in the use of technology in education, focusing on the use of virtual reality, storytelling and other creative approaches to teaching. These fields are important in supporting self-sustaining human presences on other worlds.

This event will be live streamed from 12.30-1.30pm ACDT (02:00:00 UTC).

Each month Cosmos Science City brings together Adelaide’s brightest scientists to hold conversations with a live audience about issues of the day.

Cosmos Science City is supported by Inspiring South Australia, making science visible.
