Overview

AOSEC is delighted to include this brand new network into our professional development network portfolio.

STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are the foundations of the industrial and corporate world. While these are some of the most important subjects, they can often be overlooked even though they are skills that are in high demand by employers. This network will allow colleagues the opportunity to explore the implementation and expansion of STEM subjects in their college.

Each agenda will cover a range of topics including, ways to engage students in STEM subjects, case studies, STEM opportunities and training, as well as external organisation input and sign-posting to guidance and resources.

College experiences will play a large role in this network, with colleagues being asked to share best practice and methods.

Group discussions will feature at every network, giving delegates the opportunity to raise any concerns or challenges.
