FOCUS ON: M.Ed. in Integrative Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (iSTEM)
This iSTEM M.Ed. program provides in-service teachers with current, integrative, design-centric teaching and learning methods applicable across PK–12 grade levels. Key features are:
INTEGRATIVE: Emphasis on Integrative (cross-curricular) methods between the STEM components and non-STEM content areas.
DESIGN PEDAGOGIES: Design-centric Project-Based Learning (PBL) methods are covered extensively. These PBL methods enable higher cognitive student engagement, and include highly contextualized settings.
CONTENT AREA KNOWLEDGE: Content in individual STEM areas are covered. Additional NJ State content endorsements may be possible depending on individual’s backgrounds.
PRACTICAL APPROACH: Gives teachers practical skills, including curricular writing, inclusive practices, assessment and deep connections to current educational standards. TCNJ college certificates or NJ State Supervisor certification are also possible.
The Department of Technological Studies, in TCNJ’s School of Engineering, is a national leader in PK–12 Technology, Engineering, and Integrative STEM education.
