This series of workshops is designed to intrigue and inspire in equal measure by using STEAM as a gateway to the general capabilities in meaningful and authentic ways.
Each workshop will be 90-minutes and will leave you with some practical tools to apply in practice in primary or secondary settings. You are invited to dip into one or two workshops or join us for all four. The intention of these workshops is to provide an entry point into exploring the possibilities of STEAM education and what it could look like in your classroom. An additional component of this series is that each workshop is delivered by a team of educators from a range of backgrounds and disciplines to truly model and unlock the integrated nature and possibilities of STEAM education.
Workshop 3 - Communication
Communication skills are critical if we are to not only effectively share what we know about STEAM-related phenomena, but enhance and strengthen these understandings too. Drawing on a range of formal and informal written and verbal approaches, this workshop will challenge you to apply your skills in innovative ways as well as equip you with strategies to enact in your context to enhance students’ sharing of their STEAM knowledge.
