TO ALL TEACHERS OF A-LEVEL MATHS: an invitation to join our NW3 Maths Hub Developing A-level Pedagogy Workgroup 2020-21
We would like to invite you to join our online professional development Work Group that will operate in 2020-21 for A-level Maths teachers in the Maths Hub NW3 area (Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helen’s and Wigan).
A Work Group is a particular model of professional development where teachers work collaboratively to plan and implement their own PD requirements using the support and expertise of colleagues from North West Three Maths Hub and the AMSP (please see attached leaflet and flyer for further details). Work Groups are organised jointly by AMSP and Maths Hubs and are entirely free to attend.
Previous participants in our Work Groups have commented very favourably on this style of professional development – we believe it is an innovative, efficient, and enjoyable means of collaborative working. Whilst we have previously met face-to-face, we believe that an online series of meeting will work just as well in 2020-21, so we plan to have more regular (but shorter) meetings online.
The first meeting will take place online on Thursday 3rd December, from 2.00 – 3.30pm
If you would like to be part of this Work Group, please complete the registration form below:
If you are not able to attend the first meeting but would still like to be involved, we encourage you to sign up anyway: the dates and times of future meetings will be by agreement of all members.
Please encourage other colleagues from your department who are involved in teaching A-level Maths to join up as well – it is particularly helpful if we have more than one teacher from each school/college. Please note also that if you participated in a Work Group last year, we strongly encourage you to sign up again this year and develop new projects!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
