STEM Endorsement
8/31/2016

Middle Georgia RESA is excited to share the news!!!

Our STEM Endorsement is PSC approved and open for registration.  

 

Middle Georgia RESA’s STEM Endorsement program is designed to equip candidates to create and implement STEM curriculum aligned to career connections and to ensure that students are provided authentic hands-on STEM based learning experiences in their daily instruction.  

 

The STEM Endorsement is divided into two courses and must be taken in sequence. Completion of the two courses is required in order to add the STEM Endorsement to an existing level 4 professional teaching certificate or higher.

This is a job-embedded program.  Candidates must practice skills with students.  

Course 1:  Foundations of STEM Education is 6 credits.

Course 1 focuses on STEM culture and pedagogical practices, the engineering design process, the Quality Framework for STEM Education lesson design, and content development inclusive of industry and higher education partnerships.  Candidates will develop an understanding of the components of a STEM Certified School in Georgia.

 

Course 2:  Curriculum Design and Instruction for STEM Education is 10 credits.

Course 2 enables STEM Endorsement candidates to put the pedagogical practices developed during Course 1 into practice. Candidates will design and implement authentic experiences in STEM and STEM related careers for their students. Course 2 includes further design and content development, STEM unit creation, teaching of a STEM unit and submission and debut of a STEM unit as a final product.
