The new BSc Education for STEM aims to develop passion for
education in a range of contexts to prepare students for the
world of work so that they can respond to current and future
demands of STEM education with creative and adaptive
approaches. It provides students with innovative and forwardthinking pedagogical experiences to develop key
employability skills. This course is designed to respond to the
skills shortage in STEM and to develop champions of STEM
education who will have the values, skills and attributes to
transfer this knowledge and passion to a variety of audiences. Thematic teaching brings into play real-life examples allowing the application of theory to be seen in context in the world around us. Thematic teaching has the advantage that it develops STEM creativity and understanding and widens opportunity for the
development of key employability skills. The use of digital
technologies play an important part of the creative pedagogy. Students will study related subject knowledge across the STEM disciplines.
