Welcome to our very first special event for pre-service teachers! MAV are hosting an event just for pre-service teachers. The afternoon will start with an hour of professional learning, focussing on fun and engaging activities to use directly in the classroom during school placements and beyond. A session will cater for primary teachers, and another for secondary. This will be followed by an hour of networking drinks and snacks on us!
Pre-service teachers who are student members with MAV are eligible to attend. Those from all universities are welcome.
Who Should Attend
Pre- service teachers – primary and secondary
Jen Bowden, Ellen Corovic, Helen Haralambous, Danijela Draskovic
MAV education consultants work closely with schools to deliver professional learning, and support them as they strive to improve their mathematics teaching and learning. They also deliver professional learning at sessions at MAV, at conference and events and online. Our consultants are highly experienced mathematics educators who lead the way in providing professional support across the state.

Successful learning and teaching of mathematics is much more complex than three Content strands and it involves more of a mental disposition. In order to develop this disposition, as ‘mathematics is what mathematicians do’ (Milgram, 2007), one must be emerged and challenged within a task. Mathematical Proficiency is one way of explaining this mathematical disposition and through evidence based practices one can begin to see what is meant by mathematical proficiency. However, questions still remain; how does problem solving support the successful learning and teaching of mathematical proficiency? How can teachers use these teaching practices to assess mathematical proficiency? And in what ways can students’ responses be used to assess mathematical proficiency?
PLEASE NOTE: This session will be delivered via WebEx. If possible, the session will be recorded with audio recording over the presenter’s PowerPoint.
This workshop is aimed at Foundation - Year 6
Presenter: Paul Staniscia
Paul Staniscia is currently a Deputy Principal, Mathematics Leader and eLearning Leader at an inner northern suburbs primary school. He also works as a consultant for the Mathematical Association of Victoria and has written various articles for their Prime Number journal. Having completed a Masters in Educational Leadership, he values a culture of relational trust when working with teachers in evidence based learning and teaching, in Melbourne and across New Zealand. His recent work has been around developing self regulated learners and ensuring they know where they are going, have the tools for the journey, monitor their own progress, recognise when they are ready for what’s next and know what to do next. Paul uses both previous classroom teaching experience as well as effective leadership practices when collaborating with teachers in using data to identify student need and impact of teaching.

The MAV19 Conference Committee is pleased to announce the MAV19 conference early bird is now open.
This year theme is Making+Connections.
Making connections is crucial to the success of mathematics education in the future. Mathematics educators should work collaboratively, across schools, with university, industry partners and various other stakeholders. Mathematical connections are about developing educators’ breadth and depth of knowledge for teaching including knowledge of curriculum and knowledge of how students learn. Making connections will ensure both rigour and innovation, and provide opportunities for increasing impact in mathematics education.
Join our MAV19 ‘Community of Practice’.
