– Solve mathematical problems in various STEM contexts.

Objectives and learning outputs

Each lesson includes practical activities, discussions, and projects that will empower you to immediately apply what you’ve learned in your own teaching environment. By the end of the course, you will have developed a rich toolkit of STEM teaching strategies and a deep understanding of how to foster STEM skills in your students.

Methodology

The course will combine theory input and discussion with analysis of practical incidents with the purpose of finding out different possible solutions. The methodology used is mainly content-based language instruction (communication through specific content).Text discussion, oral presentation and discussion, role-playing, self- and meta-reflection, debating and group interaction will be the strategies more frequently used.
