Enhance differentiated and inclusive mathematics teaching in your school.

Leading Differentiated Teaching in Mathematics explores the pedagogical approaches that effectively meet the diverse mathematics learning needs of students in an inclusive manner.

School mathematics leaders require an understanding of how learning design can enable mathematical activities to be undertaken at an appropriate level for each student. This fully online course will equip you to lead teachers towards effectively differentiating learning opportunities for students with diverse abilities, backgrounds and performance levels. You will consider collaborative planning techniques that focus on elevating differentiation.

Leading Differentiated Teaching in Mathematics is part of Bastow's Numeracy Suite.

Audience

Designed for educators with a desire to further develop their pedagogical and inclusive learning design expertise, including:

  • primary or secondary numeracy or mathematics leaders
  • professional learning community leaders
  • curriculum coordinators.

The estimated time commitment for this course is 3 hours per week during workshop weeks, and up to 2 hours per week during non-workshop weeks.

Over 15 weeks, you are expected to engage in and contribute to:

  • a weekly self-directed learning activity
  • a weekly school-based investigation task
  • optional weekly live discussion groups (on non-workshop weeks)
  • a mathematics leadership project to be completed over the last 6 weeks of the course.

You’ll gain knowledge and understanding of:

  • pedagogical approaches that can support differentiated, inclusive mathematics teaching
  • maintaining effective teaching in challenging circumstances
  • inclusive lesson structures
  • collaborative planning techniques that focus on elevating differentiation.

You will develop the skills to:
