Course Description

With the STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) acronym having so many meanings and implications, it is often difficult to develop shared meanings on which to base teaching and learning. Focusing on assignments, interdisciplinarity, or problem descriptions can only go so far in providing meaningful foundations for developing integrated teaching and learning opportunities. In this session I share a framework based on student practices that orients STEM not only on the intersection of the disciplines but also on the ways of thinking and habits of mind that are essential for STEM learning. Such an orientation provides openings for inclusivity and diversity of thinking about the STEM fields and various cultural approaches and contexts. Examples of activities and projects are explored.
