Making sense of STEM education

The Engaging STEM Education seminar series intends to explore various aspects of STEM education with a focus on implications for learning and teaching. The first in a series of four seminars begins by unpacking the question - what is STEM education?

Using STEM Talks as a stimulus, this panel of educators will provide insights into their understandings of STEM education and generate a range of ways of thinking about how STEM education might inform practice. Opportunities will be provided for attendees to discuss their practices and experiences with colleagues before moving into a sharing session to generate further conversation and ideas about what STEM education might look like in practice.

Discussion Panel

  • Deb Corrigan (Professor, Monash University)
  • John Loughran (Dean of Education, Monash University)
  • Andrew Wilkinson (Science Academy Leader, Sandringham College)
  • Linda Sproul (Education & Community Programs, Museum Victoria)
