Description

COLLABORATIVE STEM PROGRAMMING
The real benefits in designing and implementing iSTEM (integrated STEM) learning are the heightened levels of student thinking, collaboration and motivation.

A core part of this is bringing educators and leaders together to make this a feasible reality in school settings. Building upon the design-thinking processes and toolsets highlighted in the NoTosh workshop from 2016, this full-day program is designed to support teams of educators to identify and develop practical STEM activities within curriculum and to create the context for more effective collaborative input by staff.

Great learning requires great design. How staff and leadership use time, curriculum, resources and leverage individual skillsets will be analysed and optioned over the course of the day. It is recommended that educators participate in this workshop as a pair or team, and ideally come with key plans or elements of their curriculum as an authentic springboard for design and discussion.

Places in this workshop are limited to ensure strong conversations and depth.
Participants will –
  • Extend their capacity to implement iSTEM (integrated STEM) strategies
  • Build design-thinking processes and toolsets to identify and develop practical STEM activities within curriculum.
  • Develop the context for more effective collaborative input by staff  through the effective use of resources and skillsets
