Showcase Event - Thursday, 11th May

Join us in Tangent in the Trinity Business School on Thursday, May 11th from 1pm for:

Empowering teachers through collaborative and reflective practices: A showcase of innovative teaching and learning strategies for Maths and all subjects.

This exciting free event will showcase examples of fostering a collaborative and reflective environment in schools (CaRE). CaRE is an Erasmus+ project that has developed strategies and resources to nurture the development of Communities of Practice, through co-planning, co-teaching, peer observation and TeachMeets. Access Maths is a pilot project run by TCD that focuses on improving the maths experience for students in secondary schools and uses many of the CaRE strategies to achieve this aim. This showcase will display examples of best practice from the CaRE and Access Maths projects.
