Erasmus+ project - exploring problem solving

The next event for the Controlled Schools Support Council’s (CSSC’s) international Erasmus+ project will be held on 8 - 10 October in Trinity College Dublin.

CSSC School Support Officer Jill Brown will be leading the professional development course on the topic ‘using technology to present problem solving activities’. 

Over the three days delegates will take part in interactive activities, consider learning outcomes and investigate how best to teach problem solving in mathematics. 

Jill Brown said 

I am excited to spend three days exploring innovative techniques with teachers who are passionate about maths. 

We will be taking a hands-on approach to the activities which are aimed at exploring how teachers can build confidence and give pupils the skills and expertise to both solve problems and to pose them. 

I am sure that after the sessions, teachers will feel confident in disseminating their knowledge to colleagues and to embed it into everyday practice.

The international Erasmum+ project team includes controlled schools Kilcooley Primary School and Bangor Academy and Sixth Form College, and they will be joined by student teachers, teachers and adult education tutors from Dublin for the event.
