Maths in Schools Professional Learning
The Maths in Schools Professional Learning program has a range of free professional learning resources to suit your needs, including free online courses, training events and professional learning packs delivered by The University of Adelaide. The program aims to build confidence and positive mindsets in maths and numeracy, founded on evidence-based research and pedagogy and harnessing the many high-quality resources and programs found on the Mathematics Hub.
The program is available to all teachers but has a particular focus on reaching participants based in schools in lower socio-economic areas, regional, remote locations, schools with higher First Nation student enrolments and out of field teachers looking to increase their confidence in teaching maths and numeracy.
Free online courses
These self-paced courses showcase maths and numeracy learning and teaching lessons, resources and current practice and pedagogies. They also provide opportunities for networking and sharing resources in an online course community.
Professional learning events
We offer free face-to-face and virtual professional learning events, designed to help teachers and schools to engage with maths and numeracy through the online courses and Mathematics Hub. We have Project Officers across Australia delivering professional learning sessions to suit your school needs. Our Project Officers can deliver:
- Maths in Schools Professional Learning briefing sessions that introduce Maths in Schools resources and support available.
- Introductory and immersion workshops for various year levels across F-2, Years 3-6 and Years 7-10.
- Theme-based workshops, such as Growth Mindsets in Maths, Culturally Responsive Maths Pedagogies and more.
