Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education

We welcome educational practitioners from science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computing, from all phases of education and work place training on our STEM Masters course. The STEM Masters course will consider the development of conceptual understanding generic to all the STEM subjects, whilst developing expertise within a specialist aspect. This course will challenge students to think deeply about their own professional contexts and settings, their place and role within this, and the possibilities for development, change, and generating practice knowledge and innovations. We will engage critically with the research that informs thinking about learning and classroom practice in the STEM subjects. We will examine the place of practical experience and the use of problem solving in real life contexts in developing pedagogical approaches. Students will look at how belief systems are established and at some of the counter-intuitive ideas that learners need to confront within the STEM subjects. We will consider the importance of developing positive attitudes in learners and explore the strategies involved in the successful management of change within institutions. Course members will also consider the role of the STEM subjects in all aspects of wider society.
