Content

This unit encourages participants to explore some key features of quality teaching, including organising for learning, effective communication, nurturing of learners, engaging students, catering for individual differences, and ways of structuring open-ended learning. These strategies are portrayed as necessary for an inclusive curriculum that will lead to the construction of relational understanding of any specific content, including mathematics. Participants look critically at a range of aspects of mathematics lessons, and then choose to investigate more deeply (individually or in groups) a feature of the teaching approach that links with their specific interests and specialist fields.
