MAV18 conference - teachers creating impact
 

The Mathematical Association of Victoria is excited to announce the 55th Annual Conference (MAV18) will be at La Trobe University, Bundoora from Thursday 6 – Friday 7 December 2018.

Call for Options is now open!

At the heart of MAV’s Annual Conference are teachers. Each year over 1400 mathematics educators including teachers, academics, policy makers, curriculum experts and resource developers come together to share their collective expertise, experiences and ideas. This year the conference will focus on best practice, new ideas and innovative approaches around how:

  • sharing action research and evidence is improving practice
  • technology can be used as a valuable tool to support teaching and learning
  • critical and creative thinking can be embedded into the classroom
  • networks and communities of practice can support excellence and improvement.

This is a chance for you to share your experiences and knowledge with your colleagues and we encourage you to submit an abstract.

Submissions will only be accepted online. Click here to access the Call for Options google form.

Early bird registration is now open!

Dr Finkel commenced as Australia’s Chief Scientist on 25 January 2016. He is Australia’s eighth Chief Scientist. Prior to becoming Chief Scientist, he was the eighth Chancellor of Monash University and the eighth President of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE).

Since commencing as Chief Scientist, Dr Finkel has led the Review into the National Electricity Market (“Finkel Review”) and the 2016 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap. He currently leads the STEM Industry Partnership Forum for the COAG Education Council and serves as the Deputy Chair of Innovation and Science Australia.

Dr Finkel has an extensive science background as an entrepreneur, engineer, neuroscientist and educator. He was awarded his PhD in electrical engineering from Monash University and worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in neuroscience at the Australian National University.

In 1983 he founded Axon Instruments, a California-based, ASX-listed company that made precision scientific instruments. After Axon was sold in 2004, Dr Finkel became a director of the acquiring company.

In 2006, he focused his career in Australia and undertook a wide range of activities including co-founding Cosmos Magazine. During his time at ATSE, he led the development and implementation of the STELR program for secondary school science.
