Supporting Mathematics Teaching – 2018 webinar series



Over the past two years we have supported well over 100 schools around Australia with excellent online learning, targeted to what teachers need.  Our partnership data shows that schools who participated had double the student growth of those who did not.

In 2018 we will begin our new series, with 15 live and 23 recorded sessions.

Topics for live and recorded sessions are included below.

For the first time, this includes a half-hour introductory session for parents for you to use at an information session.
