Innovative Teaching and Learning Approaches in Enhancing Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) Education

Conference Title : International Conference on Innovative Engineering and Technologies
Session Title : Innovative Teaching and Learning Approaches in Enhancing Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) Education
Conference Date : 27th-28th November 2015
Submission Due : 21st October 2015

Proposed Abstract :

Students’ creativity is an important aspect in teaching and learning Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The need for students’ creativity and innovation is detrimental to achieve higher level or out of the box thinking skill. Studies have shown that student’s interest in learning STEM is hindered by the lack of hands-on, innovative and creative activities while learning STEM. Students also need to be acquainted of the impact of their innovation to industry and community. Teachers and facilitators need to improve and shift from traditional and passive way of learning to active, innovative and student-centered way of teaching and learning STEM. The broad scope includes, but not limited to innovative methods and approaches in teaching and learning STEM; curriculum, students and faculty development; assessment and evaluation; continuous quality improvement; industrial and community linkages and involvement; soft skill induction; and students’ employability skills.
