About Dianes’s presentation
A lack of engagement with maths is a common issue faced by teachers in schools, vocational colleges and other educational settings. Although the learning context may differ, there are recurring themes in students’ experiences of society and education that influence their response to maths. In this seminar a multi-level approach will be taken to explore the issues and discuss approaches used by individual teachers and whole organisations to engage and motivate young adults. Recent research in England on the development of a Whole College Approach (WCA) will be examined that focuses strongly on ways of improving student engagement with maths through changes in both management strategies and classroom practice. During the seminar there will be an opportunity to consider perspectives from practitioners and researchers before spending time in small groups discussing how the approaches might be applied in different settings.
