Event description


Workshop Descriptor:

This workshop will engage participants in what research says about effective teaching and learning of mathematics and how this connects to inquiry. Participants will explore mathematics concepts through engagement with a range of learning challenges. The role of high challenge tasks, digital provocations, mindsets, assessment for learning and organization of curriculum in creating learning environments that inspire students to think and engage as mathematicians, will be explored. Participants will also have the opportunity, to engage with the planning process in response to the workshop.

Participants will:Explore research relating to effective teaching of mathematics

  • Engage in practical mathematics inquiry and develop a deeper understanding of mathematics concepts

  • Examine the place of high challenge and non-routine cognitive tasks and how to build them into a coherent program

  • Identify factors which support inquiry in the teaching and learning of mathematics

  • Explore ways of assessment for learning rather than performance

  • Reflect on the impact of the workshop on their current teaching of mathematics

Audience: Primary and early childhood teachers of mathematics, curriculum leaders, principals.

Mignon has taught in a range of school in Australia and her passion for effective teaching and learning of Mathematics led her to the role of numeracy advisor for independent schools in South Australia, professional development facilitator, writer of Mathematics support materials as well as developer of various projects to enhance student learning in Mathematics.

Mignon has held various leadership roles in schools. She has been involved with the International Baccalaureate since in 2000 as a teacher, PYP coordinator, workshop leader and school visitor, regional manager for the Asia Pacific region and head of elementary for a large international school. During her time at the Australian International School in Singapore, she worked closely with Professor Peter Sullivan to manage a project which focused on implementing research-based strategies which support student learning in Mathematics. After 10 years in Singapore, Mignon returned to Australia where she is the Educational Leadership Director for Lutheran Schools in SA, NT and WA.
