Module Description: This module is planned to provide readings and discourse of STEM and STEAM education research and its interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary connections. STEM/STEAM education is becoming a major catalyst of educational reform and development internationally and in the United Arab Emirates.

The module examines the parallel but separate development of these subjects/fields, their differences, their connectedness, and connection to education, policy and strategic planning, curricular implications and especially to K-16 student learning. Finally, each student will be catered to to develop their research topic of interest within the module concentration.
