Effective pedagogies in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education are crucial in preparing students for the future, and the Quantum STEM Conference on Friday 24 November 2023 will help you to learn why.
Featuring a keynote presentation from Professor Vasileios Stravropoulos, senior lecturer of clinical psychology at RMIT University, the conference will showcase engaging STEM learning experiences that give students future-ready skills, promote innovation and encourage lifelong learning.
Alongside Vasileios, the conference will feature expert presenters from:
- Victorian primary and secondary schools
- RMIT University
- La Trobe University
- the Victorian Academy of Teaching and Leadership
- the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority
- tech schools
- science and maths specialist centres.
Across the day, participants will have the chance to join collaborative discussions, interactive sessions and hands-on workshops to explore ideas, strategies and best practice in STEM teaching and learning. Other key focus areas will include:
- pedagogical approaches such as design thinking, problem-based learning, game-based learning, the engineering design process and culturally responsive teaching
- experiences and learnings from schools that have implemented innovative STEM teaching approaches and models
- the use of technologies such as 3D printers, laser cutters and drones in the classroom.
- Date: Friday 24 November 2023
