Question and answer session

The Q&A sessions on courses from the National STEM Learning Centre provide you with the opportunity to ask more about the course content and issues from your own classroom practice.

Andrea Mapplebeck recorded the Q&A video on 28 May 2019 and we will be uploading on 31 May. This is an open step, so you can bookmark the URL to your favourites and return to it at any time. We will also upload the video to STEM Learning YouTube channel.
