Project Summary

As the world is introducing more pressing challenges to our economies, people should be equipped with the necessary skills to innovate, solve complex problems and think creatively. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education, commonly known as STEM Education, arises as the answer to engage students with more pragmatic competencies and discovery learning. 

60% of the new jobs from the 21st century require STEM related skills hold by only 20% of the current workforce. In the next 10 years, the demand will be greater. Therefore, the project aims to narrow this offer-demand gap within APEC economies, through the identification of relevant mechanisms to integrate STEM in education, as well as in curriculum and pedagogical practices. Furthermore, the project will encourage economies to create or fortify their own Virtual STEM Learning Communities composed by STEM professionals, teachers and students, as a practical mechanism to share experiences, advices and lessons learned in STEM education. 

The project is divided in the following activities:

1) Hold a workshop in Lima, Peru on the margins of SOM3 to share STEM investigation practices and “STEM-based curriculum” experiences and to identify synergies/common areas of work among education and training stakeholders and policy-makers from the APEC member economies, as well as from international experts/organizations on the subject;

2) Develop and exchange recommendations to encourage economies to create their own Virtual STEM Learning Communities as a space for mentoring and exchanging resources, information and successful class experiences to improve STEM teaching and learning skills. 

The scope of the project is consistent with the HRDWG objectives and the priority of “Developing Human Capital” of the 2016 APEC Agenda, regarding the development of STEM careers to address occupational and employment needs of innovative business and industries. Also, it builds upon the positive results in promoting STEM skills from the Korean initiative “APEC E-Learning Training Program”.
