It’s not enough to know what strategies work best – it’s knowing WHEN those practices are best leveraged to maximise students’ ownership of their learning.

Practical examples, insights and strategies to reflect on and use in your own practice is at the heart of this day. The focus will be on demonstrating how using the right approach at the right time can help you more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning. This session includes Visible Learning research, its connections to surface, deep, and transfer learning as it relates to mathematics, and the most impactful approaches to use in each stage of learning.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will go deeper into:

  • Investigating the principles of Visible Learning research to the mathematics classroom.
  • Exploring the three phases of learning and the unique importance of each: surface, deep, and transfer.
  • Learning which mathematics practices have the greatest impact on student growth (and which have the least) to maximise and strategise teaching time.
  • Considering how to strategise what practices to implement at the right time in a student’s learning, while keeping rigour in mind.
