Course Description

This ExpertTrack will help you become a more efficient school volunteer in science technology engineering (STEM) subjects.

These courses are for STEM professionals who want to share their expertise with young people.

It is extremely valuable to receive feedback from students and other educators. We will examine the various types of feedback received in classrooms and learn how to use it to evaluate your effectiveness during STEM activities.

You can start to teach STEM lessons that are more relevant to your country's curriculum by understanding the best student feedback tools.

Find out how to find quality STEM classroom resources. Find out how to adapt science technology engineering and maths resources to meet the needs of your group. This will encourage student engagement.

This ExpertTrack will help you to plan, deliver and review how you collaborate with students and teachers in order to provide STEM activities.

Communication is essential for your volunteer role. It helps you connect with students when leading STEM activities.

This ExpertTrack will allow you to improve your communication skills, both verbal and nonverbal. It will also help you become a school volunteer and inspire young people with STEM education.

We examine the current STEM education diversity rates and discuss how we can encourage more STEM-related careers for young people.

This ExpertTrack will equip you with the confidence and skills to inspire young people to pursue STEM education or careers in STEM. This type of outreach work may be valued by your employer. They might encourage you to connect with local schools and colleges.
