These four online modules are designed to follow a full day of professional learning, delivered as a part of the STAV – Toyota Excellence in STEM Teaching Communities of Practice program. The modules in this course should not be attempted before completing this full day of professional learning.
This course uses a blended learning model to build excellence in STEM teaching practice through communities of practice. It’s objective is to build educators’ STEM capacity through communities of practice and to promote deep and sustained understandings of STEM pedagogies.
Each module contains a video, where some content is presented that relates to the design and delivery of a STEM unit, as well as an associated task to be completed. This completed task is then is shared through a forum such that all participants can view and comment on it, thus building a community of practice around the teaching of STEM.
