Developing the Competence in STEM Education (BBED6747)

Project Details

This course will provide students structured learning experience in becoming STEM educators. The *multiple-track approach will allow students to participate in activities they find a role to play in STEM education. Students will be able to: (a) select a track to work with specific community partner(s); (b) better understand the meanings of STEM and STEM education through interactive seminars/workshops/site visits; and (c) develop and try out the materials that would be useful for sustainable STEM education in local schools or in non-academic settings.

*The number of tracks on offer will depend on the number of enrolled students and the community partners.
