STEM conference 2019: Biosocial learning in the STEM subjects in higher education

This session introduces our current work on the intersecting social and biological factors that influence learning. The session will offer attendees an account of the analysis and theory suggesting that learning is a multifactorial complex biosocial phenomenon that needs an interdisciplinary approach to be well understood (Youdell & Lindley 2019). The session will show how questions techniques and analyses from Molecular Biology Analytical Chemistry Epigenetics and Neuroscience Social Science and Education studies can be integrated to understand learning and argue that STEM teaching in higher education should be at the forefront of integrating these biosocial insights into their pedagogy.
