Why Rich Learning?
“Rich Learning is key to inspiring and engaging students in mathematical thinking, and without it, maths class is incomplete. Every teacher needs to be equipped to incorporate Rich Tasks into regular classroom practice and this PD helps you do just that. You’ll walk away with both the resources and confidence you need to engage your students with Rich Learning. If you can only invest in one PD, make sure you choose this one.” - Dan Finkel
“Some learning tasks are better (richer!) than others – what makes them so? By analysing practical tasks from the field, can we build a set of criteria that describe the characteristics of a Rich Task. This PD will work towards developing such a set of criteria. It will in turn support us as teachers to become more discriminating in the tasks that we use. The major reasons for attending this PD and increasing Rich Tasks in your classroom is that these sorts of tasks tend to be much better at developing the proficiencies, are generally much more engaging, cater effectively for differentiation and hence provide a healthier more ‘balanced’ program” - Charles Lovitt
You will be provided with all program materials and have access to the tools and resources to give you immediate impact with your students.
You will also receive a certificate of learning for 7 Teacher Identified hours aligning with the 1.5, 2.5, 3.2, 3.3, 4.1, 4.2, 6.2, 6.3, 7.4 AITSL Standards.
