We were privileged to host the incredibly talented teachers from the Indonesian Ministry of Education Centre for Development and Empowerment of Teachers and Educators.
Two groups joined us out on Moreton Bay (Quandamooka) ... Specialist STEM Educators and those in the Applied Teaching Methodologies in the 21st Century stream. We love showcasing MBEECs work inspiring Champions for the Bay.
The MBEEC brief was to assist with building participants' understanding of Australian STEM Education; immersing them in a high quality school setting exposing them to innovative approaches to STEM education, and enabling participants to observe and reflect on curriculum approaches, specifically critical and creative thinking, in our setting to achieve high impact teaching and learning.
The enthusiastic and passionate guest teachers experienced our pedagogy including Connection to Place; authentic Hands-on Experiences; Critical and Creative Thinking; and Authentic Partnerships - all aligned to the Australian Curriculum.
Heartfelt thanks to Sheryl Blanchard (Program Officer, UQ ICTE), Klaus Grossenholz (Manager, Program Operations UQ ICTE), Sheila Maulita (Project Manager), Tina (expert interpreter) and Bev for chaperoning. We love opportunities to highlight MBEECs work Inspiring Champions for the Bay.
