Your assessment will involve the development of a digital portfolio, which will represent your development of STEM in Education knowledge, understanding and skill. In some instances you can use past teaching practices as an example to critique using your new knowledge, and in other assessment tasks you will develop practices and strategies, which you may be able to incorporate in your future teaching. Importantly, you can tailor your assessment items to your current practice or particular interests.
In each unit, you will undertake individual or group activities and you will be encouraged and supported to use a range of techniques to record your contribution. These may include written documents, media presentations, and other digital artefacts.
You will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded peers and be encouraged and supported to share ideas as you work towards transforming your teaching and your students’ learning in STEM.
