Training Workshop for IBSE Master Trainers on Climate Change Education
As YSN is tasked to develop modules for the National STEM Centre and Inquiry-Based Science Education (IBSE) will be the key method used for the teacher training, Nurbiha A Shukor represented YSN to join the training workshop for 4 days to become the master trainer of IBSE. She received training of IBSE directly from experts from LAMAP and ISTIC. After the workshop, she will conduct short training for YSN.
TEM Module Development Workshop 1
After an agreement is reached between the National STEM Centre, KPM and ASM, YSN started the development of the STEM Module which can be used for the training of the National STEM Centre. For a start, the module will be targeting primary school STEM subjects. The first workshop was conducted at the Institut Aminuddin Baki (IAB) Genting Highlands. The venue and accommodation were supported by KPM under the application of the National STEM Centre. In this first workshop, interested YSN members and affiliates gathered at IAB to learn about Inquiry-Based Science Education (IBSE) from Nurbiha A Shukor. This was followed by a focused group discussion (FGD) conducted among 4 practicing IBSE teachers. This FGD aimed to identify the challenges in conducting IBSE and how YSN can help. The analysis of the FGD concluded that IBSE teachers need helps in strengthening their STEM content knowledge so that they can ask the right questions that can lead to the inquiry learning and exploration among the students. It is also concluded that, teachers need ideas and materials in Malay language on how to conduct the IBSE lessons.
