I’m a Maths Head of Department. What should I do?


Running a maths department can be a daunting undertaking. Should a new (or established) mathematics HoD choose to focus upon curriculum, pedagogy, or something else? How can meeting time be used most effectively? How detailed should curriculum or lesson plans be? And how prescriptive should a HoD be in their guidance to teachers about instructional models and pedagogical practices? How should we deal with staff who don’t seem willing to change and improve?

This workshop will bring together experienced, novice, and aspiring Heads of Department to discuss these and important other questions. It will be conducted in a panel style format with questions asked to the panel, but responses from the audience also welcomed. The session will be facilitated by host of the Education Research Reading Room Podcast, Ollie Lovell.

If a strong community is formed, a follow up event may also be organised. Come with your questions ready!
