Provide training to STE(A)M teachers for INSET days #1359
Was talking to a teacher recently who was telling me it is hard for schools to find decent training courses for teachers for INSET days.
It struck me DoES could be ideally positioned to offer some teacher-focussed courses on STE(A)M.
Spoke to @ka81 who thought it could be a good idea.
What are thoughts?
You could recommend our Wearable Tech evening workshop series: <https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/wearable-tech-badge-evening-workshop-series-tickets-86906743409> https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/wearable-tech-badge-evening-workshop-series-tickets-86906743409 I know that isn't an Inset day thing - maybe we could run something similar if there:s demand.…

Having looked through a few UK, European, and worldwide websites referring to STEAM, it seems the term itself is reasonably vague. One theme is that it is generally teacher-lead and so can concentrate on any of the lettered field strengths the teacher may have.
Yes, DoES does indeed have the resources, skills, knowledge, space and personnel to teach teacher each of the letters of the STEAM fields but is that what the goal of this issue is?
Would it be about teaching teachers the fields or would it be about teaching teachers how to become more rounded in their knowledge of their weaker fields? For example teaching a science teacher a little more about art?
