STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) identify fundamental life skills for today’s students—as they are central to both future jobs and the development of modern society. Yet, introducing STEM in school curricula is often made difficult because of the “cold” mental stance usually associated with the mastery of STEM.
By integrating “Arts & Design” into STEM, STEAM represents the most novel approach within the STEM universe. STEAM education provides an opportunity to formally teach in a fun environment showing the relationships between subjects and real-life, therefore increasing a sense of motivation, self-efficacy, and problem-solving skills.
STEAM makes it significantly easier to introduce STEM in your classroom, or school, and also promotes creativity together with rationalization. It also allows for integrating the four Cs (creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking) within STEM. When Arts & Design are added to STEM, STEM becomes more meaningful to many students and engages them creatively and critically in their learning.
The course will introduce teachers to the STEAM universe. As a participant, you will take part in a series of hands-on activities designed to develop both “hard” and “soft” skills at the intersection between STEM subjects and Arts & Design. You will explore STEAM-style exercises requiring collaborative work in a stimulating, international environment and share ideas and intuitions with other colleagues.
Much of the course will help and encourage you to develop novel strategies to promote STEAM learning among your students. It will show you how to engage your learners in sharing ideas for cross-disciplinary dialogue, inquiry, and problem-solving. As a course participant, you will also take part in group discussion and design thinking practices to train other teachers to use STEAM. Thus, by the end of the course, you will develop a whole set of novel skills to introduce the STEAM framework effectively into your school.
