A Cartographic Approach Toward the Study of Academics’ of Science Teaching and Learning Research Practices and Values

Academic Article


  • The research practices of academics of science teaching and learning (academics-of-st&l) may be considered a connected, constructed landscape, the peaks of which are shaped by accumulation of like practices. Entangling interviews with twenty-seven academics-of-st&l and document analyses, in this paper I map the presence of two landscape peaks—scientific and theoretical practice—in addition to their material-communal effects. This mapping renders our research landscape as an ongoing production in need of ethical attunement. Invoking ethics of Deleuzeguattarian thinking and flow in my mappings, I conceptualize cartography as a mode of inquiry disruptive to normative research methodology used in science teaching and learning, capable of enabling landscape reconfiguration.
