Course Description

Several revolutions have defined the world in the past, and the World Economic Forum claims that the fourth industrial revolution has already begun. Governments and industry around the world have increased their focus on the role of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as a vehicle for future economic prosperity in the second decade of the 21st century. Many of the global challenges, such as climate change, energy and water sources, food security, and so on, are said to necessitate much greater scientific and technological capabilities. STEM is a term that is commonly used to refer to a group of educational and occupational fields related to science. It is the deliberate integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines in the solution of real-world problems and economic opportunities for new industries arising from technological advances, such as those arising from the field of artificial intelligence, necessitate increased capabilities. In response to such opportunities and challenges, the governments has developed policies that position STEM as a critical driver of economic prosperity in recent years.

The content and skills of STEM are highly valued in the twenty-first century. As more jobs require these skills and knowledge, education is responsible for teaching these subject areas and skills. European Union has allocated millions of dollars to STEM education efforts (e.g., professional development, curriculum, and partnerships with institutes of higher learning) in the hopes of producing this workforce. Internationally, many countries continue to prioritize STEM funding and STEM education. Some states now encourage and require science teachers (K-12) to use the engineering design process and engineering standards as one method of presenting science content based on the Next Generation Science Standards. Teacher preparation has always been a field of questions on how best to groom novice teachers for the demands of the profession. This is especially true for the sciences with debates on teachers needing more content, more pedagogy, or greater insight into applications involving multiple disciplines.

The foundations of STEM education should be introduced to children at an early age to pique their interest and curiosity. Hands-on multisensory and creative experiences can help children develop curiosity, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities. In the long run, they develop an interest in STEM fields and are more likely to major in one of these fields. This era also requires students to be trained to be entrepreneurs so that their thoughts are not limited to technical education. Developing an inquisitive mindset and attitude will ensure that they can function effectively in today’s dynamic and flexible workplace. Growing body of knowledge on STEM education subjects calls for consolidation for use in future studies. In order to advance the field of STEM education, our team conceived of the training courses as a means of bringing together the insightful and rigorous multidisciplinary and integrated STEM education.

Learning Outcomes

Successful graduates of the course will have the knowledge and skills to do the following:

  • Improve skills in using various innovative blended learning methods and techniques that are hands-on-centered, encourage the completion of meaningful real-world tasks, and foster the development of transversal competencies.
  • Apply Problem and inquiry-based learning is a student-centered teaching method that promotes learning in the context of real-world problems that students are likely to encounter.
  • Develop students’ learning autonomy through a self-directed hands-on learning approach, expand on students’ prior knowledge, prompt effective use of arguments and evidence, and use questioning as a learning tool.
  • Create ready-to-use materials and ideas to support organizational development and quality improvement in STEM field skills, as well as to facilitate collaboration between institutions and employers.
  • Enhance the quality of mainstream education by developing relevant, high-level skills such as decision making, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and other key competencies through STEM teaching methods.
  • Meet colleagues from various nationalities within the EU, engage in cross-cultural learning, exchange ideas, and create a network for future international cooperation.
  • Gain a better understanding of different countries’ educational practices, policies, and systems, cultivate mutual respect and intercultural awareness, and embed common educational and training values.
  • Improve communication skills, foreign language competencies, professional vocabulary, and promote the EU’s linguistic diversity.

Course Details


Professionals in the education sector (e.g., teachers, guidance counselors, principals, and administrators at elementary, middle, high, and vocational institutions) and non-governmental organization (NGO) staff.


Participants in this course will learn the fundamentals of STEM methodology while designing and creating their own STEM lessons and activities. Teachers will provide supporting materials and lectures to ensure that the established goals are met. Participants will take the provided material (examples of STEM activities and online resources) back home to use as a foundation for developing their own educational projects. We will demonstrate various approaches and provide new ideas on how to obtain new innovative ideas for hands-on activities in class, which are essential in all STEM fields. You will select the ones that are most appropriate for your specific subject. You will have the opportunity to learn about European STEM teaching methods. It is an excellent training course for those who teach STEM or want to incorporate the STEM approach into their curriculum.  The course has been designed with practical, humorous, and motivational sessions in mind, so that participants can apply their newly acquired knowledge. This course focuses on creative activities, innovative learning, and teaching methods for students in general. Another topic that was discussed was what instructors and teachers can do to get their students interested in technical fields and motivate them to do so. STEM can be applied to everyday life if blended learning methods are used.
