Research Focus

Dr. Gilbert has been working in education for more than 25 years in numerous school contexts across the globe. His main research interests center on inquiry-based science instruction and facilitating pre-service teachers in the development of powerful science practice at the elementary and middle school levels. This has manifested in the exploration of wonder and emotion as a means to inspire science resistant students to engage in science as both a learner and teacher. He has published his work in a range of outlets including Journal of Research in Science Teaching, Curriculum Inquiry, Journal of Science Teacher Education and Science Education. He is also the author of the book titled: Courageous Pedagogy: Enacting Critical Science Education with Information Age Publishing.
