[Yasmin_discussions] Research into STEM to STEAM methodologies


here is an interesting example of new research that seeks to develop evidence
for the usefulness but also specific methodologies for
transdisciplinary approaches
such as STEM to STEAM

Evaluating Methods of Aesthetic Enquiry across Disciplines

International Leverhulme Network

This Network will evaluate contrasting methods of aesthetic enquiry
across disciplines. Using case studies, scholars with different views
on the 'aesthetic' and diverse and complementary sets of expertise,
will seek to identify nodes of congruence/conflict in aesthetic
enquiry across disciplines in Humanities, Social Sciences and
Cognitive Sciences. Through assessing disciplinary strengths and
weaknesses and delineating intersecting research questions and fields
of enquiry, we shall generate new dialogues and propose productive
strategies for transdisciplinary enquiry. Moreover, aesthetics has
been framed in Western contexts and we will seek to work across
cultural as well as disciplinary boundaries.

The Network is structured as a series of six workshops across three
years, creating opportunities for the members to come together and
discuss methodology in an intensive workshop setting.

We would be very interested in other examples of research that develop:
a) STEM to STEAM methodologies
b) Evidence that STEM to STEAM leads to new kinds of outcomes
