AAMT 2021 Conference
Be a part of the AAMT 2021 eConference
The AAMT 2021 conference, Future Proofing, AAMT eCON, will host the most prominent thinkers and activators in the area of Future Proofing mathematics education. They will share progress in research, education, workplace culture, government policy, technology and classrooms. Will they provide evidence that our mathematical capacity is already future proof, that the ‘heavy lifting’ has already been done? More likely, attendees will each find their place in our Nation’s roadmap and make the connections with others, energise and set new goals. 29 –30 September, 2021.
This year, our conference is to be held as an eConference—safeguarding the event from any COVID outbreaks. It’s a different world at the moment and we are adapting. Our aim is to provide an online environment that enables choice and interactivity. Choose which sessions to attend and make use of the options for chatting with other conference delegates from around Australia and Internationally. This online event will make it far more accessible for our International colleagues—an exciting new possibility! Grab a ‘virtual’ coffee together!
Introducing our Keynote Speakers
We are excited to have Emeritus Professor Cheryl Praeger (University of Western Australia) and Charlie Stripp (UK) as the Keynote Speakers.
Professor Praeger has won many distinguished awards, recognising her as one of Australia’s leading mathematicians. She was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia for “… eminent service to mathematics, and to tertiary education, as an academic and researcher, to international organisations, and as a champion of women in STEM careers”. She will reflect on mathematics education in Australia over her career: changes, and the roles of women.
Charlie Stripp is the Director of The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) in the United Kingdom and Chief Executive of MEI, a charity that supports improvements in mathematics education. He will speak about the work being done to improve mathematics education in the UK.
