STEM teacher training: tools and ideas for the classroom

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is a multi-disciplinary approach to teaching. The STEM approach encourages discussions and problem-solving among students, thus making them more self-confident and motivated to solve problems more efficiently.
If you are interested in learning how to prepare inspiring and relevant lessons based on the STEM approach, this is the perfect course for you! The course will have practical activities and discussions on the tools that can be used to make the STEM disciplines creative and engaging (for example Scratch, Arduino, etc.), and how to create lesson plans integrating different aspects of STEM education such as coding, virtual reality (VR), robotics, and augmented reality (AR) into your class. This course will give you a better understanding of STEM and how to transform your teaching strategy!

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand what STEM is and what its benefits are
  • Learn how to create a lesson plan based on STEM
  • Learn how to adapt previously used materials to create a STEM lesson
  • Acknowledge all the different ways in which STEM education can be implemented in everyday learning
  • Develop a strategy about how to present new STEM materials and lessons in an engaging way

Course dates are made available based on the availability of trainers but are “confirmed” only once the minimum number of participants is reached.

Course dates are listed Sunday to Sunday. The course usually takes place Monday to Friday and the full-day trip usually takes place on Saturday, so Sundays are arrival and departure days for those who book course, activities and accommodation. You can leave earlier if you book just the course.

If you are looking for dates either not listed above or “To be confirmed”, please pre-register to your favourite dates so we can track your interest, liaise with everybody to convey participants to the same dates and make them confirmed!
