by on Nov, Wed, 2017 in News | 11 comments

Master Class #2 will be in March 2018 at the University of South Australia with Dr Chris Matthews, Noonucal Mathematician. 

Our Master Classes are designed for alumni of the Stronger Smarter Leadership Program.  You should consider attending if you are seeking to:

  • use culturally responsive pedagogies in your classroom
  • engage in a deeper exploration of complex challenges in Indigenous education, and
  • apply the Stronger Smarter Meta-strategies in new ways in your school

Dr Chris Matthews will explore the Cloud Model for teaching mathematics – which shifts the perception of mathematics from a rigid discipline that must be learned to a creative process in which students express their own language and creativity.

See the Master Class #2:  Maths & Culture for more information.

  1. I am very interested in attending your master class but I am unable to find how much it costs.

  2. I am very interest in attending this! I have downloaded the registration form however can not find out how much it costs to register.
    please let me know

  3. Hi, I received an invite to the SS Master Class and have approached my managers in the ACT re the possibility of attending. I just have a query re my eligibility to attend as I completed the 5 day Stronger Smarter Facilitator Training in Cherbourg and follow up in 2011 or 12 -however I have not attended the Leadership Training as such – are these different?
    I currently work as a School Leader C in the ACT directorate in a consultancy role and would relish the opportunity of a Stronger Smarter Project to make a difference in my work place here. Can you please let me know about eligibility ASAP as my managers are looking to approve my attendance in the coming week? Thanks Jude

    • Hi Judith
      Apologies, due to a change of staff we have only just now received your comment. To have completed the 5 Day Facilitator Training in Cherbourg you would have had to have done the Leadership Training (this is the first program in our Stronger Smarter leadership pathways). We would be happy to have you attend the next Master Class which is scheduled for March 2018 with Dr Chris Matthews, Noonucal Mathematician as leader. There will be more information to hand in the new year on the website or please sign up to our newsletter for updates.

    • Hi Judith

      I have emailed our research team with your query.


  4. Will you be running more of these sessions, possibly in Vicotria?

    • Hi Peta
