Handbook 5-English-Teaching STEM in Southeast Asia

Teaching STEM in Southeast Asia

A Handbook for Educators

The strength of an interdisciplinary STEM education lies in its ability to tie concepts from differing disciplines together to form creative synergies, and through the process of problem-based learning, encourage in students the traits of ingenuity, teamwork and resilience.

However, educators often feel stumped when integrating STEM education into the classroom, and many deem it impossible when coupled with the arduous task of keeping students focused and in school during remote and hybrid learning.

This handbook looks at some of the tangible and tried ways educators in the region have made use of STEM concepts and theories to bring STEM lessons to life, even as remote and hybrid learning remain a long-term reality for many. The experiences and strategies outlined in the handbook, which can hopefully encourage educators to implement STEM education, focus on:

  • Frameworks for STEM lesson design
  • Making STEM teaching and learning relevant
  • Integrating the arts in STEM
  • Building up STEM teachers as leaders
  • Creating STEM communities and pathways
  • STEM for sustainable development
