Inspiring Maths Leadership (Advanced)

The program is founded on a view that strong maths learning, teaching and leading will support all learners, no matter their circumstances and experiences, including whether they have thrived or been challenged during 2020.

Deepening the dispositional emphasis of the characteristics of great maths learners will temper maths-related anxiety and contribute to overall learner well-being. The 'Enlisting and Partnering with Families' area of focus in the series will directly attend to the Connected Schools priority.

Course Structure:
The course begins with two workshop days in Term One, 2021. These are the essential components of the course. School teams then select from four additional options offered as two remote learning workshop days each term. Each area of focus involves a number of practical investigations as well as opportunities for applied learning.

The first area of focus in the series is an essential component and it is recommended that the team includes a principal class person.

  • Leading and Sustaining Change in Mathematics
  • Mapping and Visualising the Bigger Picture

How might we further clarify and strengthen our collective efforts in Mathematics by mapping and visualising the way ahead?

2.) Connecting, Coaching, Mentoring and Teaming

3.) Designing & leading professional learning in maths
