Dr Isha DeCoito

Associate Professor

Profile

Prior to joining the Faculty of Education at Western University I was an educator at universities in Canada and the United States, including OISE/UT, York University, and Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. I have taught in teacher education programs, as well as in the Faculty of Arts and Science at the University of Toronto. I am the 2014 recipient of the President’s University-Wide Teaching Award at York University.  Currently, I teach in the Graduate program and I am a STEM educator and Coordinator of the STEM Specialty Focus in Teacher Education at Western University. I am also working with the Centre for Planetary Science and Space Exploration to develop a new professional Masters program.

To date, I have been involved as principal investigator on over 16 projects in STEM education in various contexts, including medical programs, Aboriginal reservations, teacher education programs, and schools. My focus has been on stakeholder/relationship management and communication, and research on measurable outcomes and impact, especially in terms of creating new and better opportunities for students. My research foci also include games based learning, simulations, and incorporating the T-PACK framework in STEM education.

I am an elected member of the International History, Philosophy and Science Teaching Group, a past Environmental Education Program Committee Coordinator for the National Association for Research in Science Teaching (NARST), and a Guest Editor for a special issue of The Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education dedicated to STEM education.
