This subject is one of three undergraduate Option subjects in integrated science, technology, engineering and mathematics (iSTEM) offered by the School of Education. Completing all three subjects will provide a specialisation in iSTEM. This subject aims to equip students with content and pedagogical content knowledge in integrated STEM education in the context of an inquiry based approach. Students will develop, create and reflect upon a contextual problem, make explicit links to the science, mathematics and technologies curricula and 21st century learning skills. Pedagogical content knowledge will be developed by students creating and evaluating project plans and implementation approaches in a variety of educational settings as appropriate to their degree (ie ECE, Primary or Secondary).
