This presentation explores transdisciplinary STEM strategies that foster
critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, and resilience in
students. The session will focus on providing learning opportunities that
prioritize contexts of societal relevance and student/community interests, while
highlighting the importance of having the skills and knowledge necessary to
solve real-world problems. Participants will learn about phenomenon-based
learning, unit planning with NGSS, inquiry-based lesson planning, and other
strategies that promote student-centered learning. The presentation will also
showcase strategies for integrating science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics into the learning experience, emphasizing the importance of
inclusive practices that recognize and value diverse perspectives. Through this
session, participants will gain insights into how to create more inclusive and
equitable learning environments in STEM education.
This workshop focuses on equipping students with skills to solve real-world problems in STEM fields through relevant learning opportunities, effective tools and strategies, and the integration of 21st century skills.
