In this session, we will be hearing from Di Siemon who will talk about realising 'best practice' in (M/m)athematics education, and Nicole Boyd, who will explore two way dialogue on akatyerr (desert raisin) in a female Indigenous middle years’ class: continuing towards cultural inclusivity in mathematics curriculum and pedagogic practice, see bio's and abstracts here.

There will be a short interactive Q&A session following the presentations, and you are encouraged to share early questions during the registration process, as well as through the chat facility during the webinar itself.
Best of all, we have been able to make this first series free for participants! We will also be recording the session, so please register your interest even if you're not sure if you can attend the live session, so we can follow up with you afterward.
