Through the exploration and implementation of innovative pedagogical practices, this certificate will help you create classrooms in which science, technology, engineering, arts and math are integrated into an engaging, coherent whole. While in the program, you’ll build on your pedagogical beliefs and explore the ways that you can better align what you believe with what you do, creating new approaches and sharing them with your peers. Focus on the ways in which STEAM is more than just five letters or a set of discrete disciplines and discover a new perspective on teaching and learning!
This certificate is offered by AU New England.
Whether you work in a pre-school, a graduate school or anything in between, this year-long, fully online program is for educators interested in deepening their own practice and exploring and applying STEAM in their own classrooms.
The STEAM Certificate Program trains educators in the core practices of inquiry-driven, experiential pedagogy, and authentic assessment as tools for instruction and curriculum design.
Relevant and engaging coursework takes into account the lives of working educators. The experiential, practical approach helps participants remain committed to their current job and personal responsibilities. The program combines online pedagogy with interactive teaching methodology which models the STEAM methodology we hope to see you implement in your own classroom practice. It includes small class sizes, individual attention from faculty, and real-time connection via telephone, online conferencing, and webinars.
