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 units will provide a specialisation in iSTEM. This unit aims to equip students with content and pedagogical content knowledge in integrated STEM education in the context of project-based learning. Students will be scaffolded to use problem solving and collaboration skills, to think creatively and laterally, and to take initiatives as they engage with and reflect upon the projects. They will make explicit links to the science, mathematics and technologies curricula, whilst using various design processes. 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 education).
