AUAF Launches STM Teacher Training Program
Thanks to a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, AUAF is able to offer a program for high school teachers focused on STM (Science, Technology and Mathematics) education. As part of the Hewlett grant, the program includes a strong focus on IT training, driven by recently completed analysis of Afghanistan’s IT market needs. The online learning sessions kicked off on September 3 as the 36 nominated high school teachers examined scientific versus narrative writing styles and practical applications of Microsoft Word. In weekly sessions over the next 24 weeks, STM teachers will continue to have the opportunity to expand their understanding of English for Special Purpose, as well as be introduced to teaching methodologies for specific STM subjects.
