Here is an exciting opportunity for mathematics teachers of Years 5, 6, and 7 to be involved in a cutting-edge international research project involving Australia, China, and Germany. We are running a project that studies mathematics teachers’ thinking processes during lesson planning, teaching, and reflection. If you agree to participate in this project, you will be asked to adapt and teach a provided lesson plan (Lesson 1) and then create a lesson plan yourself for a follow up lesson and teach the lesson (Lesson 2). You will also be asked to complete several online questionnaires before and after teaching Lessons 1 and 2.
We estimate that participation in this project will involve 10 hours in total (including the teaching of Lessons 1 and 2). Your time commitment in this project can count towards your professional development to meet registration requirements if you are a registered teacher in Victoria or Western Australia*.
* If you are registered in a different state or territory in Australia, your participation time may still count towards your required professional development but please check your local requirements.
