Caroline Chisholm Catholic College is excited to join forces with Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools (MACS) and Monash University to collaborate on a project that is aimed at building teacher capacity to create challenging, authentic and exciting STEM learning opportunities for their students.
MACS Acting Executive Director, Dr Paul Sharkey, said ‘Our schools and teachers are already highly skilled and invested in problem-solving approaches to learning. However, by combining the expertise of Monash University with that of our teachers, this project will further build capability in this critical area of teaching practice.’
‘Importantly, this work also supports our response to Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical, Laudato Si’, which challenges future generations to live sustainably.’
#theSTEMproblem project will deliver a coherent and sustainable pedagogical framework to inform school-based STEM education.
