Lead the STEM future

It’s been said that the best way to predict the future is to create it. At Western, we agree but we also think another way is to teach it.

With a greater reliance on technology and science, and the increasingly fast pace of change, it’s important that primary-school teachers like you are equipped with the skills and knowledge to teach the students of the future.

Teachers completing this course will also develop skills in leading interdisciplinary teams to promote and deliver STEM programs in primary schools, and a strong understanding of the importance of research evidence to inform their teaching in STEM. The course is suitable for primary and lower secondary science, mathematics, or design and technology teachers.
