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 closing in one week!

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 and will be closing on Friday 15 June. Click here to access the Call for Options google form.

Early bird registration will close on 29 June!
