What does STEM look like in the classroom?

In this workshop we will approach STEM instruction from a science educator’s point of view, arguing that the integration of engineering practices is a way to enhance science instruction and to integrate the components of STEM. 


The goal of the workshops is to provide teachers with a simple, practical process for implementing meaningful STEM activities in the classroom. Teachers will be guided through exemplar lessons that incorporate engineering practices and design processes. They will gain an understanding of how to design lessons and tasks that allow students to apply or demonstrate their knowledge in some meaningful and relevant fashion.

This structured approach will provide teachers with a clear process and a wealth of resources for designing effective, meaningful STEM lessons. 

(Although this is a stand-alone presentation, this workshop would provide an excellent follow-up for those that attended the ‘Putting the E in STEM’ workshops in Term 1.)

STEM teaching and learning involves the successful integration of science, mathematics and technology. Planning and implementing effective lessons that have STEM focus depends largely on teachers’ understanding and knowledge of the subject matter.

These workshops aims to deepen teacher’s science content knowledge and expertise in teaching that content to all kinds of learners.

The workshops will provide teachers with links to explicit curriculum materials, investigations and contemporary pedagogical strategies that will enable them to successfully plan and deliver integrated science programs with a STEM focus.

The workshops will actively engage teachers in science investigations, using an inquiry approach to build conceptual understanding. Teachers will also be challenged to explore the opportunities to integrate technology and mathematics to support the learning.

This workshop will focus on the Chemical Sciences.  

A STEM - Beginning with the Science (Secondary) workshop is scheduled for 24/8/18.
