TEACHER TRAINING

on STEM education

STEM is based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary way. Instead of teaching the above mentioned disciplines as separate subjects, STEM integrates them into real-world applications. This course will give you a better understanding of STEM and how to transform your teaching accordingly. 

Description

COURSE METHODOLOGY

Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use:

 

Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Raise awareness on the importance on STEM Education discussing all its characteristics;

  • Explore and discover the benefits that the STEM Education can foster;

  • Help participants aknowledge all the different ways in which the STEM Education can be implemented in everyday learning;

  • Furnish easy and accessible tools to apply the STEM Education to revolutionize your current teaching strategy;

  • Create a cross-cultural exchange and understanding with local colleagues on the benefits that the STEM Education can give and the ways in which can be best applied.
