Contemporary practices in STEM education
STEMinar Series 2017
The Engaging STEM Education seminar series intends to explore various aspects of STEM education with a focus on implications for learning and teaching. The final in this series for 2017 challenges us to think about the possibilities inherent in this construct by questioning - what are the contemporary practices underpinning Primary STEM education?
A panel of educators will provide practical insights into their thinking and experiences while focusing on: - classroom planning and teaching - building partnerships with outside organisations to enhance STEM education - strategic approaches for sharing STEM experience and expertise.
