Associate Professor, Faculty of Education

Research Interests

My research interests focus on the history and philosophy of science and technology education. I contribute to the literatures of science and technology teacher education, the history and philosophy of physics, and research methodology.  

My current projects include:

  1. Maker Pedagogy: An exploration of intersections between the maker movements, the Arts and Crafts movement, digital technologies, material cultures, and education.
  2. Self-study of teaching and teacher education: An epistemic and ontological consideration of the role of reflective practice and the study of self in learning to teach. 
  3. Sir Oliver Lodge: A technical and social historical analysis of Sir Oliver Lodge as a physicist and public educationist in the late 19th- and early 20th- centuries. 
  4. The Association of Scientists for Atomic Education: An analysis of the intended, enacted, and hidden curricula of the ASAE in the late 1940s, including but not limited to its ambitions for for K-12, post-secondary, and general public education.

Please note: Dr. Bullock will not be taking any new students as senior supervisor.
