STEM education offers an opportunity to engage students in authentic and relevant problems, allowing them to make interdisciplinary connections and break down the barriers between its four disciplines. While STEM opens up opportunities for a rich integrated learning approach, it can be a challenge to get started when planning an effective STEM Education program.
In this webinar, two experienced STEM educators will share their processes for designing a STEM program and explore effective STEM pedagogy. You’ll see how one school has implemented a STEM program, hear about some of the latest research relating to STEM education, and see how the design process is an integral element in engaging students in problem solving activities.
You can see both of these presenters deliver sessions at DigiCon18, the annual conference of DLTV.
