Re-imagining futures in STEME

Evaluation of the STEM Enrichment Academy

The STEM Enrichment Academy, run out of the University of Sydney, is a significant professional learning initiative bringing together mathematics, science and technology teachers over a year, to support planning through a program of workshops and mentor visits. This evaluation involved field notes, interviews, and school case studies. The findings have been reported on in a number of publications, concerning the nature of, and the challenges and benefits of interdisciplinary STEM innovation.
