Program Description

The STEAM Teacher Training course is a rigorous, two-week, 20-hour program for STEAM educators in all fields who are interested in creating a multidisciplinary, student-centered learning experience for their participants.

The course will run from November 1– November 14, 2020, and covers four main modules: STEAM Lesson Planning, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Effective Feedback in Experiential Learning, and Teacher Development Workshops. Not only will participants be able to use the appropriately adapted lesson planning framework, which allows them to apply an Experiential Learning approach with UDL guidelines to their STEAM activities, but they will also constantly be sharpening their skills through continuous reflective sessions. During the course period, participants will run teacher development workshops where they deliver student-centered content to their peers and receive feedback in guided reflection sessions. The course practices what it teaches, and offers a highly interactive, experiential learning experience guided by UDL principles.

Educators who successfully complete the course assignments will receive a certificate of completion offered by World Learning. Additionally, graduates of the course will be a part of the growing network of STEAM practitioners that World Learning is building in the region and will receive updates on prospective programs and exchanges in the region. Best of all, the program is free to participants.

The STEAM Teacher Training will be taught by Dr. Mohamed Abdelaziz. He is a World Learning certified teacher trainer, medical doctor, and a master’s degree candidate in English literature. Dr. Abdelaziz has more than 12 years of experience in teaching and teacher education and has spent the last decade with World Learning developing educational programs under multiple projects for ministries of national and higher education and academic research, U.S. Department of State, and STEM engagement funders including The Boeing Company, DOW Chemicals, and Anadarko Petroleum.
