The Mathematics Teaching and Learning Centre (MTLC) at Australian Catholic University (ACU) is committed to supporting primary and secondary teachers, mathematics leaders/numeracy coordinators, school leadership teams, families, and school communities (primary and secondary) in translating mathematics education research into practice in schools. The MTLC’s aim is to engage school and education-related communities with mathematics education research and to make impact within those communities by providing practical ways to use research as way of enhancing mathematics teaching and learning in classrooms. This aim is achieved through the MTLC professional development program.
This program consists of three large professional development conferences held in Melbourne each year. These professional development conferences are offered to mathematics education professionals across Australia and New Zealand where mathematics education academics and consultants present high-quality, research-informed yet practical workshops. The MTLC conferences are open to pre-service and in-service teachers, mathematics leaders/numeracy coordinators, school leaders, and education sector leaders working across Government, Catholic, and Independent schools and systems.
Due to COVID-19, the Mathematics Teaching and Learning Centre has cancelled the following conferences:
In the meantime we are excitedly planning our 23rd Annual Primary and Secondary Teachers’ Mathematics Conference on Wednesday the 2nd of December 2020. Our program will be available here and via our mailing list in early September.
The MTLC is pleased to announce that we are bringing some of our conference presenters into the online world with our MTLC Maths Master Class Webinar Series 1.
These webinars will be just over one-hour long presented by MTLC regular conference presenters including Doug Clarke, Leonie Anstey, and Matt Sexton. The MTLC also welcomes a new presenter, Michael Minas, through this webinar series. Stay tuned as we hope to invite other regular MTLC conference presenters in future series.
These webinars will provide opportunities for participants to explore effective teaching and learning of mathematics in primary classrooms, as well as offer advice for mathematics leaders leading professional learning in primary schools. Participants will be provided with a selection of resources highlighted in the Master Class as well as recognition of one hour and fifteen minutes of professional learning for registration purposes.
Note that Zoom will be our platform for these webinars.
