Completing The Annual STEM Education Summit will contribute 16 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
Three years on from the unveiling of Australia’s National STEM School Education Strategy 2016-2026, what progress has been made, and where to next?
As technology continues to transform industries, educators are challenging traditional teaching models, implementing new curricula and driving change in their classrooms and communities today. In an evolving, digital world, how can we best equip our students with the skills needed in quantum computing or biotechnology, or even for careers and industries that don’t exist yet?
Increasingly, the movement in Australia and globally is shifting towards STEAM – integrating STEM with the Arts, including art and design, the humanities and entrepreneurship – and embedding the ‘real world’ into learning.
This year’s STEM Education Conference will explore this theme and feature hands-on workshops, panels and presentations from inspiring educators, leading researchers, as well as industry and education changemakers.
Please join us on 6-7 August 2019 at the Rydges World Square, Sydney as we share ideas, engage in lively and nuanced discussion and learn from each other, about the challenges, purpose and opportunities to be harnessed.
