Mathematics Development Programme for Teachers
The mathematics education team at the IOE offers an exceptional range of expertise and experience. The IOE sees this proposal as an important element of its mission for education to transform people's lives and recognises the importance of good mathematics teaching to achieve that aspiration. The IOE is therefore committed to deploying its considerable human and material resources to help London teachers achieve a deeper appreciation of mathematics as a human and living enterprise, consisting of a connected web of meanings at a time when schools face challenging circumstances.
The course consists of three interrelated parts:
- face-to-face contact sessions based at the IOE
- directed work arising immediately from the taught contact sessions
- school-based work where teachers relate the university-based experiences to their own practice.
A Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) will be used throughout the course to enable teachers to maintain contact with each other and with tutors, enabling the ideas to be embedded in professional practice.
