To keep pace with complex societies and jobs, educational environments should provide students with learning opportunities that integrate a variety of disciplines and skills. There has been an increased investment in multidisciplinary initiatives in schools, but those activities are rarely planned properly, or sometimes they focus just on scientific subjects. In addition, teachers sometimes feel like they lack the tools to organize their teaching so that learners can actually access content from broader, multidisciplinary perspectives.
This course aims to tackle the need for more complete multidisciplinary learning activities, and for the acquisition of 21st-century skills by introducing the participants to STEAM education.
Participants will learn how to involve students in useful and stimulating learning activities, in which Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (the basic components of STEM education) connect with the Arts in a broader sense. Through STEAM, students can explore and experience the relationships between school subjects and real life, and have more chances for cross-disciplinary dialogue, inquiry, and problem-solving.
In this course, participants will acquire a practical understanding of what STEAM really is, how it differs from STEM, and how their own learning environments could incorporate STEAM activities effectively. Participants will explore STEAM-style exercises, and will collaborate to develop both “hard” and “soft” skills at the intersection between STEM subjects and Arts & Design.
By the end of this course, participants will have developed their own novel strategies and activities to incorporate STEAM learning into their classrooms.
