BY INVITATION ONLY
This one-day seminar will demonstrate how students training to become primary teachers and STEM subject specialists can design learning experiences that engage future engineers.
There is an urgent need to increase the flow of students into engineering. Teachers play an important role in shaping children’s views about careers from an early age, so if educational institutions give trainee primary teachers the knowledge and resources to help children ‘think like an engineer’ when they teach design and technology, science or computing, will they be able to cultivate engineering habits of mind (EHoM) and recognise them when children use them in class?
This seminar, Engineering the future: training teachers to develop tomorrow’s engineers, will introduce the Academy’s latest research findings on EHoM to individuals involved in initial teacher education and invite participants to suggest how recommendations from the report might be taken forward.
This event is by invitation only and registration is required. For more information, please contact Tom Gunter , Education Policy Advisor, Royal Academy of Engineering.
