EDUC 56 STEM and Education
How do we learn, understand, and teach science, technology, engineering, and math (the STEM disciplines)? In this class, we will explore the nature and development of the scientific mind; how we formulate theories, design experiments, and understand scientific, technological, and mathematical concepts; and how we learn and teach related skills in the classroom, addressing the debate about the effectiveness of direct instruction and hands-on approaches. Open to all classes.
