Oxford University Press (OUP), the world’s largest University Press organised a seminar-cum-workshop on STEAM Education in Hyderabad. STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. It empowers teachers to employ project-based learning that crosses all five disciplines and fosters an experiential learning environment, where all students are able to engage and contribute.

Nearly 160 school representatives participated in the event that introduced the STEAM concept to teachers and focussed on its applicability in classrooms. OUP also brought in industry experts to engage with teachers and enlighten them with views on ‘Learning in the 21st Century’. The keynote address was delivered by Aurobindo Saxena, Consultant and Educationist.

Eminent panellists shared their views on how STEAM education is the need of the hour for any modern day schooling system. The panellists included Lalitha Naidu, Principal, Meridian School,&nba Shankar, Principal, P Obul Redddy Public School, Dr C Ravi Prasad, Principal, Vikas Concept School and Madhavi Chandra, Associate Director, Geetanjali Group of Schools.

Speaking about the event, Sivaramakrishnan Venkateswaran, Managing Director, Oxford University Press (India), said, “STEAM Education is based on the ideals of collaborative exploration and problem-based learning with a focus on real-world issues. It is conceptually different from the traditional education models that have limited scope for students to innovate, create and solve complex problems. At OUP, our endeavour is to continually engage with educators and introduce them to newer learning and teaching pedagogies, so that learners are 21st century ready.”
