Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education is the intentional interdisciplinary approach to learning where the Curriculum is coupled with inquiry or project-based learning to address real-world challenges.
STEM literacy has been identified as imperative in equipping our learners to solve emerging problems and preparing them for an increasingly complex society and the world of work. The Department of Education has a STEM Framework to guide schools in STEM approaches and pedagogies.
This workshop provides primary and secondary teachers with the capacity and tools to plan and implement STEM learning aligned with the Department of Education’s STEM framework within their classroom.
As a result of engaging in this course, participants will:
- know how the STEM framework can be used for planning and implementing STEM approaches in primary and secondary schools
- know how to access resources to support STEM approaches in primary/secondary schools
- understand that STEM approaches involve the integration of STEM learning from the Australian Curriculum applied in project, problem or inquiry-based learning which is authentic and contextually relevant
- design STEM learning challenges that will enable their students to develop STEM literacy.
