MAV education consultants work closely with schools to deliver professional learning, and support them as they strive to improve their mathematics teaching and learning. They also deliver professional learning at sessions at MAV, at conference and events and online. Our consultants are highly experienced mathematics educators who lead the way in providing professional support across the state.
Why come along? Find out from a previous attendee...
MAV education consultants showed us a range of fun, simple and engaging activities we could use in our classrooms. The consultants were highly experienced Mathematics educators, so they had many tips and tricks to share and were happy to answer any questions we had about teaching Maths. We received copies of all the activities – making them easier to implement in our teaching, as well as a range of extra teaching resources and materials to take home!
After this we popped over to the Queensberry Hotel where we had the opportunity to network with future maths teachers from universities across Melbourne (with free food and drink on MAV!) I really enjoyed the chance to talk to other up and coming teachers, hearing about their uni experiences and the wisdom they have learnt from their respective courses. It was a great chance to make some connections with future, enthusiastic colleagues like myself and we’re already looking forward to when we’ll meet again at the next MAV event.
