THE ROAD TO STEM ENGAGEMENT: PREPARING STUDENTS WITH THE SKILLS FOR ENGAGEMENT AND RETENTION IN STEM

STAFF IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS - COORDINATORS, CLASSROOM TEACHERS AND PEDAGOGICAL COACHES

PRESENTED BY LARA LANG AND CATHERINE O'HALLORAN, EXPERT SCIENCE TEACHERS AND CO-FOUNDERS OF THE STEMABLE PROJECT

This workshop is intended for all school staff working with students or involved in planning, program or policy development for STEM subjects. The workshop will provide information about designing a contemporary curriculum that is Future Focused. We will look at the key capabilities essential for all students as we enter the transition into the fourth industrial revolution, and how STEM teaching and learning is integral to the development of these skills. The workshop will unpack the why and how of these key skills, including problem solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, embedded literacy and numeracy and communication. This workshop will allow participants to explore, discuss and share strategies and ideas about the following key aspects:

  • What is the implication of the fourth industrial revolution on the future of education
  • Why are key skills, capabilities and dispositions for today’s students so important?
  • What are the opportunities inherent in STEM subjects and pedagogy for the development of these key skills
  • How can you as educators and leaders facilitate the authentic integration of these skills in to your teaching and learning plans?
