Shane Bergin

University College Dublin

Assistant Professor on Science Education

Dr. Shane Bergin is a physicist based in Dublin with ample experience on science education and science communication. He is an assistant professor in science education at NUID UCD’s School of Education. Shane and his research group are interested in teaching and learning in physics (and STEM more broadly). Shane’s research considers these informal settings like lecture-halls or labs and more informal settings like a metro train. In 2018, Shane produced and presented ‘101 The Ways We Learn’ – a 10-part podcast that explores the science of human learning. To inform these podcasts, Shane followed 10 people learning new things (like swimming, coding, and baking). Shane built on these, calling upon experts from a variety of academic disciplines. In 2016, Shane presented Bright Sparks – an 8-part radio series on Ireland’s national radio station. Bright Sparks asked what happens when you empower clever people to follow their passions. Since 2015, Shane has run Quavers to Quadratics – a programme that sees primary school children play with ideas common to science and music. An experienced researcher, science communicator and moderator, he will also present a podcast series on trust in expertise for PERITIA.
