11 April 2017: Seminar by Peter Maclaren, Academic Advisor in the AUT Centre for Learning and Teaching, "The future forms of tertiary STEM education"
We know what the new Engineering, Technology and Design building on St Paul Street will look like. But what about the future of learning and teaching? What influence might developments in technology, pedagogy and content knowledge have on what we do as educators? This seminar will examine some current research and seek your views on what form tertiary STEM education might take in the future.
