The Proceedings of ESERA 2021 is an electronic publication for revised and extended papers presented at the ESERA 2021 conference organised by the University of Minho, Portugal, from 30 August to 3 September 2021. All papers in the e-Proceedings correspond to communications submitted and accepted for the ESERA 2021 conference. All proposals to the conference went through a double-blind review process by two or three reviewers before being accepted to the conference. A total of 739 proposals (out of which 33 were symposia) were presented at the conference, and 158 papers are included in the ESERA e-Proceedings, 5 of them from symposia.

The authors were asked to produce updated versions of their papers and consider the discussion that took place after the presentation and the suggestions received from other participants at the conference. The e-Proceedings presents a comprehensive overview of ongoing studies in Science Education Research in Europe and beyond. This book represents the current interests and areas of emphasis in the ESERA community at the end of 2021.

The e-Proceedings book contains seventeen Parts representing papers presented across 17 strands at the ESERA 2021 conference. The strand chairs for ESERA 2021 co-edited the corresponding Part for each strand 1 to 17. All formats of presentation (single oral, interactive poster, demonstration/workshop and symposium) used during the conference were eligible to be submitted to the e-Proceedings.

The co-editors reviewed the updated versions of the papers submitted after the conference at the end of 2021. ESERA, the editors and co-editors do not necessarily endorse or share the ideas and views presented in or implied by the papers included in this book.
