Free international online course

This year is the second year of the Digital Learning Across Boundaries (DLAB) project. We are nearly ready to share learning ideas and resources based around using digital technology creatively with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics).

The online course will begin in the first week of June. You can sign up at this link

Overview

STEM to STEAM adds the Arts to the integrated and applied study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), to create interdisciplinary challenge-based learning opportunities. Creativity and imagination, which lie at the heart of the arts, are blended with the critical thought and enquiry of STEM.

This is a flexible online course that you can join in with at a pace and depth that suits you. We will suggest activities and ideas based on our international DLaB project work, and encourage you to try them within your teaching.

We would like you to leave each week with something new to try out in practice and we will encourage you to share your experiences and swap ideas on our weekly themes within our Google+ community. You can start sharing ideas in the online community now; there‚Äôs no need to wait for the start date.

Who is this course for?

Our course is aimed at primary and lower secondary teachers, however anyone with an interest in the field is very welcome. It is in English.

Welcome to the University of Northampton

If you have a place on the FDLT / BALT course starting in September 2017 you should browse the university website ‘new students’ area. You can find this here.

The ‘Before you Arrive’ section is good place to start. You can find this here and some of it is also copied below.

The checklist below includes all of the essential things you will need to do before you arrive on campus:

  • Read all the correspondence that we have sent to you
  • Check your course details
  • Find out about support for additional needs. If you have additional needs relating to a disability, medical condition, dyslexia or mental health difficulty please contact us on 01604 893430 or email ASSIST@northampton.ac.uk to discuss your needs
  • Read the University rules, regulations and Student Partnership Agreement
  • Ensure that you have completed and returned any forms that we have sent to you, for example:
    • your online accommodation application and reservation if you require accommodation in halls of residence
    • your online Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) if required for your course. Check your application and send any supporting documents to the Admissions Office
    • If your contact details or circumstances have changed since you confirmed your place you will need to contact the Admissions Office by emailing admissions2017@northampton.ac.uk
  • Read the Enrolment information page for further details of documentation that you will need to bring.

Remember that any communication from UCAS or from Admissions must be dealt with promptly. If you receive something that seems inapplicable to you contact Admissions 2017@northapton.ac.uk or the Admissions tutor jean.edwads@northampton.ac.uk for clarification. An example of this is related to accommodation and Welcome Weekend: most, if not all of you, will not be living on campus so this communication is not relevant but you still may need to reply to decline this.
