The Department of Education and Training (the Department) is partnering with key educational organisations to offer a one-day ‘STEM education and Careers’ professional learning opportunity, designed for careers practitioners and teachers of STEM disciplines. This workshop will support schools to give students the education that industries will need, and the skills that employers will expect them to have.
- learn about how the Department is supporting STEM education and careers education
- learn about programs that may assist in the delivery of STEM related subjects and careers education
- use collaboration tools to explore, share and plan for school-wide programs in STEM and careers education
- provide feedback for future STEM and careers education online support for schools.
Ideally, two participants (a career practitioner and teacher of STEM discipline) per school will participate and plan for enriched student learning programs.
The STEM education and Careers workshop will be held 9:00am – 3:00pm, Friday 22 April 2016 at Monash Conference Centre, Level 7, 30 Collins Street, Melbourne.
