Developing and Enhancing STEM Teaching using Robotics

This is a training course that highlights and develops the teacher’s role within STEM learning. It aims to provide teachers with the theoretical and practical framework for STEM teaching and involve them in learning activities based on problem-based learning through the use of robotics. This course gives teachers the opportunity to experience through hands-on activities the STEM content, but also gain self-efficacy and a new view of their own capabilities as STEM teachers. Teachers will be able to further enhance the digital competences of their students and develop their employability skills by enhancing their team work, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
 

This course is addressed to primary and lower secondary school teachers of any curriculum discipline and will be based in Derry/Londonderry, N Ireland.
