The course extends upon the earlier Curriculum and Pedagogy course and explores skills, knowledge and processes that are shared amongst the STEM disciplines. So often in practice, secondary teachers are required to teach beyond their two specific teaching areas that they learnt during their initial teacher education degree. This course specifically aims to increase preservice teachers' ability to teach beyond these areas by extending pedagogy and pedagogical content knowledge to other teaching areas within a broad cluster of STEM. You will develop an understanding and appreciation of the complexity and interrelatedness of the cluster of STEM disciplines and begin to see potential for designing learning experiences that broaden perspectives. There will also be opportunities in this course to extend your focus on discipline specific practices when you break into smaller groups that are discipline specific.
