In efforts to provide effective support in STEM education in general and to help schoolteachers and leaders to consider STEM approaches and carry them out effectively, theperceptions of researchers active in STEM education or initiatives regarding STEM aresignificant. Despite many efforts to disseminate and implement STEM education, littleresearch has focused on the researchers. The present study aimed to explore STEM researcherperceptions of STEM learning environments using the Draw a STEM Learning EnvironmentTest (D-STEM). The drawings portrayed varying levels of STEM integration and in alldepictions, there were indications of student-centred instruction. We conclude this paper witha discussion of the implications for practice and research.
