Online courses for leaders of mathematics and numeracy in primary and secondary schools: overview and effectiveness

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperOtherpeer-review


Professional learning for school mathematics leaders is a key aspect of the Victorian Government’s strategy for improving mathematics for Victorian students. This is because middle leaders in schools play a vital role in designing and leading school improvement. As part of the Numeracy Suite, four online courses were designed in 2020 to support the professional learning of mathematics leaders. The courses were implemented and evaluated across 2020- 2021. The evaluation showed that each online course was effective in meeting the professional learning needs of primary and secondary mathematics leaders.
