STEM Certificate Course
Everything STEM educators need to know and be able to do!
The STEM Educator Certificate course engages participants in unpacking the knowledge and skills required of STEM educators, while adapting the content to their students and community. The 11 course sessions, designed based on input from over 150 educators, cover topics such as framework for high-quality STEM, STEM unit development, standard-alignment, the engineering design process, diversity & equity in STEM, real world connection, STEM pedagogy, and resources. The course is led by experienced STEM educators who model cooperative learning and STEM pedagogy. The final project presented during the last session is an integrated STEM Challenge which is aligned with all components of high-quality STEM.
Graduate-credit requirement: In addition to the PDP level tasks, educators who sign up for the 3 graduate-credit extension will submit a research paper related to one of the topics addressed in the course (literature and guidance will be offered by the instructors).
