Teachers, regardless of location, are invited to gain a better understanding of STEAM pedagogy at an upcoming symposium.
The STEAM Horizons 2.0 symposium will serve as an opportunity for Tasmanian educators to explore how STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) education is defined and be used by teachers and students to produce cohesive and creative outcomes.
The event will be conducted via video conference between three locations: Rosny College, Launceston Big Picture School and Burnie Primary, but will also allow for teachers to stream the conference online.

UTAS arts education lecturer Dr Abbey Macdonald said the bigger picture from this symposium was to make visible how STEAM is being used in a holistic way where disciplines benefit one another.
"Making space for depth of discipline knowledge to be obtained is a really important ... ultimately sharing practice of how teachers grapple with and achieve it is what this symposium does," she said.
The syposium will be held September 18 from 6pm, for more information visit pli.education.tas.gov.au.
