At this time of year, many maths departments and groups of teachers are running professional development sessions. If you haven’t decided what to do within these sessions, have you considered using the NCETM Departmental Workshops?
The workshops have been written to provide mathematics teams with structured professional development which can be delivered in-house utilising members’ expertise and knowledge. Each workshop module has an overview and a number of resource sheets. These can be viewed individually, or the whole workshop can be downloaded in a zip file.
Twenty-seven of the modules are topic-based – for example, fractions, simultaneous equations and circle theorems can be accessed by following the links on the Departmental Workshops homepage. To decide which of these modules might be best suited to you and your department’s needs, you may like to make use of the Subject Knowledge Self-evaluation Tools to establish which areas of the curriculum you might wish to work on. Remember that the self-evaluation does not have to be done individually, and many people have reported that completing the self-evaluation as a whole department is at least as useful as doing it by yourself.
The most recent additions to the collection of workshops focus on general issues of interest or concern to mathematics departments:
