Description:

Mathematics Leaders day!

For current and emerging mathematics and numeracy leaders, and system leaders working in schools and across the primary sector. Sessions provide practical advice and tools to lead change in your own school context.

The Mathematical Association of Victoria (MAV) in collaboration with the Melbourne Graduate School of Education’s Mathematics, Science and Technology Education Group (MSTEG) present a conference focusing on primary school mathematics education.


Theme: QUALITY TEACHING 

Evidence shows that quality teaching including teacher capability and confidence are key to student learning success. Quality teaching requires many things for educators to be at their best. These include developing personal attributes such as resilience, self-efficacy, and a willingness to learn. Leading educators also require strong content knowledge, and a deep understanding of pedagogy relevant to student cohorts at various levels from lower to upper primary.

Further, excellence in teaching and learning also requires educators to build practice excellence using evidence to measure effectiveness and impact.

Join us to develop your own capability and confidence as a mathematics educator and leader, exploring evidence for quality teaching, as we arm you with the tools and knowledge to provide the best student learning experience and outcomes.

Themes for leaders day include:

  • understanding the attributes of quality teaching
  • exploring aspects of quality learning environments such as engagement, high expectations and student self-regulation
  • leading improvement and change to develop teacher capability and confidence
  • developing an evidence-based approach to mathematics leadership including leading professional learning teams
  • using assessment and data to drive quality
  • understanding my personal attributes and developing myself as a mathematics leader
