Edited by Michael Grove and Tina Overton With contributions from: George Brown, Lou Comerford Boyes, Sarah Edmunds, Ross Galloway, Duncan Lawson, and Joe Kyle In September 2011 the National HE STEM Programme commenced a series of activities aimed at supporting project leads with the evaluation of their educational enhancement activities. During the workshops and events that were offered it became clear there was great interest and enthusiasm amongst those within the UK higher education science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) sector for these activities to be extended to provide support for those looking to undertake pedagogic research. In the 2012/13 academic year, the initial workshop series developed by the National HE STEM Programme was continued with support from the Higher Education Academy. This guide has been produced following the workshops and events that have been offered to date and complements the national network (@STEMPedR) that has been established.
