The format of this webinar was a live panel discussion which was focused on supporting deeper learning in the maths classroom. The discussion was prompted by research on the ideas of surface learning and deep learning in mathematics education, as well as questions and comments submitted by listeners live on the night.
We were delighted to be joined by Aidan Fitzsimons, PhD candidate in Mathematics Education in DCU, Audrey Byrne, Mathematics Teacher from Lucan Community College, Dublin and Peter Fitton, Mathematics Teacher from Bishopstown Community School, Cork.
The main talking points were:
• Surface Learning and Deep Learning
• How do you create opportunity for deep learning?
• Deep Learning and the Junior Cycle Mathematics Specification
