EUN631 STEM for 21st Century Learners

STEM provides a disciplinary context through which learners of all ages, in formal and informal settings, can develop what are often referred to as 21st Century Skills, including critical and creative thinking, collaboration, communication, innovation and entrepreneurism, and digital fluency. In turn, the development of these skills supports the development and enhancement of conceptual understanding across the STEM disciplines. This unit, the first in the STEM in Education study area, introduces various conceptual frameworks for understanding STEM in Education that will be further explored in other units of the study area. This unit will prompt you to critically reflect upon your experiences of STEM education and to identify opportunities to further support the learning of STEM and the development of 21st century skills. You will connect with peers who represent a broad cross section of STEM education contexts and who share an interest in advancing STEM education.
