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 1 - Critical Thinking
Critical thinking is at the core of most intellectual activity. The pedagogies promoted in this workshop will enable you to unpack what critical thinking looks like in the mathematics classroom and transfer that knowledge into unfamiliar STEAM contexts. You will share learning experiences with Education and Mathematics experts to explore, develop and apply conceptual understandings of mathematical concepts and associated pedagogies, that can be utilised to promote critical thinking.
