EDCI 55850 Introduction to Teaching in Engineering & Tech Design in Context of STEM Ed

Engineering and technology design has gained considerable traction in many K-12 schools. In this course, we will examine principals of engineering design and technology as well as where and how engineering and technology design best fits in a K-12 integrated STEM curriculum. Course participants will engage in authentic engineering and technology design experiences. Course participants will also design, develop, deliver integrated lessons that help K-12 students develop the knowledge, skills, and practices of engineering and technology design.

Prerequisite: None
