In this symposia, Beth Marr will lead a number of presenters from different sectors to explore the issues that surrounds the need to teach people to be able to talk about their mathematical and numeracy knowledge and to use talk to build this knowledge.
Participants are invited to develop the program through a pre-symposium survey so make sure you register early so you can contribute to this process.
Sessions may focus on:
- principles that underpin good practice in improving the connection between Numeracy and English language development and literacy skills acquisition
- how assessment practices support or disrupt good practice
- adaptions needed for different cultural contexts.
Confirmed guest speakers include: Beth Marr, Di Tomazos and Dave Tout
