Enrollments are open for the STE(A)M Education for Educators course

Invitation to participate in the MOOC “STE(A)M education for educators” offered by the STEAMonEdu project.

The project STEAMonEdu is funded under the Erasmus+/KA3 program and aims to contribute to innovative and interdisciplinary approaches in the implementation of STE(A)M education, by reviewing and strengthening the professional profile of the teacher. No transition to STEM or STE(A)M education will ever be possible without the full and active involvement of educators. As teaching strategies are changing, educators need to update their competency profiles to meet the challenges of STE(A)M education.

In this context, the STEAMonEdu project has developed the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) “STE(A)M Education for Educators: Design, orchestration and implementation of STE(A)M education“. The course is based on the five perspectives of the STEAMonedu Competence Framework for STE(A)M educators, which represent the different roles that a STE(A)M educator can have within the educational process:

  1. Educator as teacher-trainer-tutor
  2. Educator as designer and creator of learning
  3. Educator as orchestrator and manager
  4. Educator as a member of the community
  5. Educator as a professional

  • active educators (teachers, trainers, etc.) at all levels and in all contexts of formal and non-formal education;
