International Mathematics and Literacy Conference 2018 (Scotland)

A Brand new Approach to Teaching Mathematics and Literacy

  • A framework for moving from surface to deep learning

  • Identifying and eliminating ineffective teaching practices

  • Research-driven methods for great mathematics and literacy learning


An evidence-based approach to learning:

A unique opportunity to see an eminent global speaker outline his ground-breaking research on:


“What Makes Great Learning”


He will outline his critically acclaimed frameworks, proven to accelerate student learning in both literacy and mathematics.

Professor Douglas Fisher and our team of experts will explore research-driven insights into:

  • How to determine the impact of teaching practice

  • Effective intervention strategies

  • The importance of drawing on what we know is working

  • Recognising and rejecting what does not work.

Delegates will receive instantly implementable skill sets for use in the classroom, with:

  • New teaching methodologies for mathematics

  • Practical ways to deepen literacy learning

  • Deeper knowledge on how to make all learning visible.

Information on speakers coming soon.
