High School Math Teacher Dialogue

So . . . What happened in the 2021-2022 academic year and what to expect next year ??? Let’s learn from one another. :)

The University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) is continuing with their High School Math Teacher Dialogue, after a break due to Covid.

We are hosting another dialogue, titled “2022 UTM HS Math Dialogue: What has happened in the 2021-2022 academic year within secondary & tertiary level Math teaching & learning?” The event will be online. 

We hope that the virtual gathering will bring high school math teachers and university instructors from across the GTA and surrounding areas to discuss teaching and learning math. Let’s have a conversation about the challenges in the present and potentially in the future, ranging from student engagement to curriculum to learning expectations to assessments. But also let’s share those unexpected positive things that occurred when we taught our students or when our students found that ‘OH’ moment.

We have invited a few high school math teachers and university instructors to give short presentations about their experiences. As well, we will leave ample time to have an open discussion at the end.
