Tania Meyer – Programs Coordinator, Youth & Education
Tania has a Junior Primary/Primary Teaching degree with Honours from the University of South Australia. Having become interested in teacher education, epistemology and philosophy for children she went on to complete a PhD focusing on the reasoning, or epistemological levels, of pre-service teachers. Primarily, her research focused on how pre-service teachers justified their scientific and moral beliefs and how sound justificatory reasoning can be developed.
Tania is passionate about developing individuals who have the ability and disposition to make well reasoned judgements, and the benefits of such individuals to society as a whole. She sees an understanding and an appreciation of the scientific method as a key contributor to individuals of all ages making sound, informed judgements about scientific and current controversial issues.
