Certificate in S.T.E.M. Education

Program Description

The S.T.E.M. certificate provides extensive background information to prepare K-12 teachers in pedagogy for integrated inquiry-based teaching and learning of S.T.E.M. concepts.  The S.T.E.M. content is aligned with NYS standards differentiated for appropriate grade level and to meet diverse K-12 student learning needs. The technology content includes use of tools for enhancing teaching and learning science, engineering and mathematics, including probeware, simulations, GPS applications, research tools and data collection instruments. Engineering concepts are included in the S.T.E.M. content and instructional resources to focus on designing authentic projects. Inquiry-based, project-based instruction will relate to the effects and issues requisite to developing knowledgeable citizens and consumers of S.T.E.M. innovations, inventions, and applications. Assessments will determine the increase in S.T.E.M. knowledge and skill for applying the concepts learned.  The courses in the program are designed according to a scope and sequence beginning in elementary school with increasing complexity as students proceed through the K-12 system in preparation for college and careers in S.T.E.M. -related fields.  This advanced certificate program provides educators with the knowledge, skills and resources for effective S.T.E.M. teaching and learning.

The program will be an interdisciplinary approach to S.T.E.M. education between faculty in the NYIT School of Education Instructional Technology Program and the NYIT School of Engineering faculty.  The faculty of each school will coordinate the course offerings to provide customized and appropriate instruction for candidates who are K-12 teachers’ teaching assignments, background knowledge, and access to resources.
