The SHEER Centre supports and promotes research and innovation in learning and teaching across science, engineering and health disciplines.

The SHEER Centre was created in response to the increasing number of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) staff active in scholarship of learning and teaching research. Instead of this research occurring in isolation, the Centre brings staff together in a collaborative framework that supports and encourages formal multi-disciplinary, innovative and practical research activity.

Research collaborations and outcomes then build our staff capacity and allow RMIT to extend best practice to our programs and improve outcomes for our students and industry groups. Our mission is to ’Transform education in science, engineering and health through research and innovation’.  


Our project outcomes build staff capacity, improve our programs and contribute to best practice teaching methods in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and health disciplines.


Publications of SHEER Centre members and associates on education research may be found on RESEARCHGATE in the project titled RMIT SHEER Centre. Follow the Project to access and receive updates on our publications.

Publications of members and associates on all fields of our research are also available on RMIT Research Repository for RMIT staff.
