Driving an integrated approach to STEM & future skills

As STEM education continues to evolve, Australian schools need to rethink how to integrate a multidisciplinary approach to STEM initiatives. On top of this, the changing demands of 21st century employers and student interests have made STEM a contentious topic with some educators seeing it as an additional workload to fit into a crowded curriculum.

The 9th conference in our STEM series will go beyond the surface level to investigate what STEM means today and address the deeper questions that students need to answer in contemporary learning. The 9th Improving STEM Education & Future Skills conference will focus on developing a whole of school culture to embedding STEM across the curriculum, investigate the best pedagogical approaches to implementing STEM and foster authentic links in STEM learning through industry partnerships and future skills.
