Developing A level Pedagogy
The Developing A level Pedagogy Work Group aims to develop and sustain local communities of practice involving collaboration between teachers in developing pedagogy in their teaching of A level Mathematics.
There is a range of currently available maths teacher professional development around subject knowledge and pedagogy for new teachers of A level Maths via the AMSP, but no extended professional development for experienced teachers or leaders of A level Maths teaching around the overarching themes, technology or other aspects of pedagogy of the new A level Maths specification.
There is a strong focus on pedagogy through the overarching themes of the new linear A level Maths specification, with changes to pedagogy in statistics teaching, assessment and expectations in the use of technology.
This NCP provides national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A level Mathematics to support Covid recovery, to enhance the quality of teaching and the conceptual understanding of students, and the development of participants as leaders of A level teaching professional development in their own school or college.
The Primary focus for 21/22: A level pedagogy to support Covid recovery
The target group of schools/colleges/departments is those which want to develop one or
more aspects of their A level pedagogy to support Covid recovery.
The target group of lead participants are existing leaders of A level teaching or
experienced teachers of A level Maths.
