Willingness to take PhD students


PhD projects

Tonie Stolberg is interested in the different ways scientific meanings are used and, in particular, when individuals use a dominant epistemological lens. In his current research this is normally a particular faith tradition or artistic means of enquiry. How is this managed by the individual and learnt? How does the relevance of scientific and artistic/religious explanations alter when viewed within a particular personal context? More generally, he is also interested in how such reflections impact on wider teaching and learning practices, pedagogical and curriculum developments and the aims of educational systems. Further research areas include:

Science for all
The teaching of and learning about controversial issues
The impact of faith on teaching and learning
Cultural influences on education
Values and education
Philosophy of education
Phenomenological education
Educational neuropsychology
