SFI DPSM and ESERO Ireland Teaching Hands-On Primary STEM CPD Series Workshop #1 - Biodiversity and Environment: Birds, Trees, Bees and Seasons

SFI DPSM and ESERO Ireland Teaching Hands-On Primary STEM CPD Series Workshop #1 - Biodiversity and Environment: Birds, Trees, Bees and Seasons

This CPD Series is a partnership between Kilkenny Education Centre, Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Discover Primary Science and Maths programme (DPSM) and the European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO Ireland).

Online CPD workshops that cultivate curiosity! The SFI Discover Primary Science and Maths (DPSM) programme and the European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO Ireland) are now offering places to individual teachers wishing to build their confidence in teaching STEM subjects. These free workshops, in partnership with Kilkenny Education Centre, will;

  • Be delivered by STEM education experts to build participants knowledge and confidence in STEM teaching,
  • Use a practical, hands-on approach which links directly to the SESE Curriculum, and
  • Outline tools that can be used in the classroom or when teaching STEM online. 

During the workshops, participants will be introduced to the DPSM/ESERO Framework for Enquiry and new DPSM activities which enable teachers to harness students’ curiosity to lead STEM lessons. This supports the enhancing of teacher capacity as outlined in Pillar 2 of the STEM Education Policy Statement.

Workshop #1 of this Series, Biodiversity and Environment: Birds, Trees, Bees and Seasons (taking place on Wednesday 27th April and Wednesday 4th May 2022, from 4 - 5p.m.), will look at hands-on learning through the topic of biodiversity. Participants will increase their knowledge of the native biodiversity surrounding us, whilst exploring the possibilities of using the outdoor environment for rich STEM learning. From designing simple habitat maps, exploring their local area and identifying native species, participants will learn to spot the opportunities to use Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths from a different angle. Curriculum Link: Living Things, Environmental Awareness and Care (also including Maths and Engineering).
