Growing numeracy | Building confidence with numbers
DurationThree-week online course
Price$210 + GST
Discover skills and resources to improve numeracy instruction and help learners increase their confidence and competency with numbers.
This workshop is tailored to tutors delivering foundation courses and tutors who cover numeracy skills as part of vocational courses.
In tertiary education, particularly within vocational subjects, there are a significant number of learners with anxiety about calculations and with poor previous achievement in “maths”. This blended learning opportunity provides educators with skills and resources to help learners overcome those limitations.
This course has two facilitated online sessions with an online mentor available throughout to provide support and feedback on your use of the resources with your learners.
- Session 1 – 90-minute online introductory session facilitated by Mike Styles
- Practice period – Participants will have three weeks to trial resources and methods discussed during the online session with their learners. A forum will be available for participants to share their progress, discuss issues and raise queries with the facilitator and within the group
- Session 2 – 90-minute online session to discuss and evaluate outcomes of the trial period and conclude the course
