STE(A)M inquiries using design thinking for secondary educators

Dr Kate Coleman (MGSE VA&D Teacher Education), Ana Ward Davies (artist and MGSE artist-teacher candidate), Dr Vic Millar (MGSE Science Teacher Education) and Kim Bruce (Secondary Science Educator and MGSE Alumni) will take you through 3 x 2 hour sessions using design thinking to design, develop, prototype and test STE(A)M based inquiries in your schools. We invite alumni secondary teachers to work with us across the year starting with this 2 hour session.

The 3 sessions are designed to collaborate with secondary teachers to co-facilitate inqury based learning across disciplinary areas, and develop a shared undersanding of STE(A)M learning through an arts based methodology for transdisciplinary learning and teaching. We will be sharing prototypes of units and inquiries designed in the workshops, with the 3 x 2 hours sessions culminating in an exhibition of artefacts and units of work in studioFive later in the year.

The 2 following inquiry design sessions will be on 16 August and 10 October from 5-7pm. Registration is a commitment to attend and participate in all 3 sessions.

This Teacher Professional Development program meets the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) requirements for professional practice and the Professional Standards for Teachers as set out by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership Limited (AITSL).

Recommended for secondary teachers of all year levels and subjects.
