EUB010 Real World Integrated STEM Education

Unit synopsis

This unit equips you to understand how Integrated STEM contributes to the investigation and solution of real-world problems, where this field aligns with the Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum, and how learners learn through contextualised Integrated STEM projects. The unit adopts authentic approaches to teaching knowledge and skills that are relevant for problem identification, definition, inquiry, the trialling of possible solutions and the construction of solutions, simulating transdisciplinary contexts in which science, technology, engineering and mathematics are practiced. The curriculum and pedagogical approaches embedded in this unit address professional standards to support the professional registration of teachers. The unit enables you to build on teaching areas related to science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics, appropriate to the context in which you will teach. The Integrated STEM approach enables prior discipline, curriculum and pedagogical knowledge to be framed in authentic learning contexts that simulate real-world practice.
