Get the most out of collaborating

  • Be positive and constructive.
  • Share your biggest challenge at the moment.
  • Share your experience, and what’s worked for you in your context.
  • Tell us what hasn’t worked, and how your practice changed as a result, so that we can all learn from each other.
  • Ask questions. There’s no such thing as a ‘stupid’ question. There will always be someone who will be glad you asked and can learn from the answer.
  • Share resources and collaborate.
  • Share the latest STEM education news. Maybe there’s a new report out that will be of interest to all of us.
  • Tell us about events you are planning to attend, or news items you would like us to add.  You can share these on the community by emailing the details to community@stem.org.uk
  • Use the ‘like button’ instead of creating posts to say ‘thanks’.

A few rules:
We want everyone to feel comfortable using this space for professional dialogue, so inevitably there are a few rules: 

  • No defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening or personal comments
  • No pornography or illegal material
  • No marketing material
  • Respect intellectual property when you share resources. Post content that you have personally created or have permission to use and have properly attributed to the content creator.
  • Do not share images containing young people unless you have parental permission to do so.
  • Do not share any personal data or confidential information about yourself, others or your employer
  • Do not use the discussion forum for administrative messages, such as “please remove me from the list” or questions about STEM Learning services. 

When creating a thread ensure the title and teaching and learning purpose is clear, this will ensure the thread is easily found in a relevant search. 
For all technical queries please contact the community manager by email community@stem.org.uk or by direct message to Tim Bradbury 
You can leave the STEM Community at any time by emailing community@stem.org.uk and requesting your community account to be deactivated.  This will not affect your STEM Learning account.
