Full STEAM Ahead – How to develop curriculum, creativity and culture in STEM/STEAM Education
This curriculum development course is based on REAL WORLD curriculum creation that seeks to empower students to have control over and take ownership of their learning. It teaches you how to develop robust cross learning area units that centre around a central narrative, linking classes and subjects. Learn to apply curriculum requirements in an integrated but streamlined way that does not sacrifice the impact and agency students will gain from a unit. Learn how to change the focus of student growth to skills and confidence and let them truly fly.
• Tap into your own creativity to apply relevant and contextualised narrative themes to your units. From a space colonisation survival scenario to a local sustainability program, learn that the constraints of curriculum and textbooks are illusionary.
• Use proven design and collaborative techniques to help you structure a robust, cross subject area unit that provides ENGAGEMENT and OWNERSHIP for your students.
• Engage with STEAM learning tools that harness creativity, problem solving, collaboration and communication skill building in students.
• Gain the confidence to break through the invisible box of curriculum constraints and take back to your school the practical skills to collaboratively create viable learning sequences that allow your students to truly fly.
