the course content was very basic and I was hoping to be provided with more information and detail on HOW to develop lessons and resources based on the principles of STEM.

A great taster to dip into STEM. Setting a personal goal to focus the learning from the start was really helpful and gave purpose to the learning. Good quality resources and presentations.
