STEM skills for Humanities

STEM4Humanities aims to merge STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and humanities education, enhancing employability and supporting women and humanities students through innovative teaching and interdisciplinary strategies, promoting a diverse and inclusive educational environment.

The project anticipates significant outcomes:

Work Packages

Work Package 1

Project Management

Our management approach is based on comprehensive principles and methodologies that ensure a cohesive and effective partnership. In Work Package 1 (WP1) we prioritise seamless coordination and information sharing throughout the project lifecycle, identifying impact measures and addressing potential challenges through frequent monitoring reports and digital meetings to ensure the project's success and fulfilment of its objectives.

Work Package 3

STEM Training Scheme for Humanities Students

Work Package 3 (WP3) of the STEM4Humanities project is dedicated to promoting a transdisciplinary approach to humanities education through STEM training for students, recognising the importance of equipping students with skills that are adaptable to evolving professional landscapes. By offering STEM training programmes through an online MOOC platform and producing a STEM handbook, the project ensures that students receive a comprehensive education that is tailored to industry needs. In addition, through activities such as the assessment of students' STEM skills, WP3 facilitates the acquisition of valuable skills critical for employment and career development.

Work Package 5

Capitalization & Exploitation of STEM4Humanities Project Results

Work Package 5 (WP5) is dedicated to raising awareness and promoting the results of the project to ensure their successful transfer to stakeholders and decision makers for further sustainability. The active use of social media accounts, press releases and the organisation of dissemination events will give the project a high visibility.

Work Package 2

Upskilling of Humanities Professors

Given that STEM skills are crucial for employability and that there is often a lack of gender balance, particularly in humanities-related fields, it's essential to equip humanities professors with the necessary teaching skills in line with industry demands. Therefore, Work Package 2 (WP2) focuses on enhancing the skills of humanities professors to effectively deliver STEM teaching approaches to humanities students. During the implementation of WP2, a self-assessment tool will be developed to assess professors' STEM skills and to develop mini STEM courses tailored to their needs.

Work Package 4

e-WBL | Humanities Students in Small Scale Businesses

Work Package 4 (WP4) will design and implement work-based learning activities to put humanities students' STEM skills into practice and make them relevant to the labour market. Firstly, a network of businesses will be established where businesses from different backgrounds will have the opportunity to work with students who have developed STEM skills, to carry out the tasks assigned to them and to face the difficulties arising from the daily tasks and actions during the implementation of the e-internship programme. This e-internship programme will enable students to apply their STEM skills in a real work environment, gain practical experience and enhance their employability.
