The programme aims to develop participants’ pedagogical knowledge and competence in teaching secondary school Mathematics through investigation of Mathematics concepts in the secondary curriculum, together with exposure to new and current approaches to learning and teaching Mathematics and related STEM education. Participants will also be provided with opportunities to engage in workshops and exchange ideas through group discussions during the programme, and they are encouraged to share and try out those new ideas and teaching approaches in their schools.
The programme comprises the following three core courses of 3 credit points each:
Using quality multimedia resources can increase the flexibility, adaptability and connectedness for the learning and teaching of mathematics. This course is designed to enhance participants’ ability in integrating multimedia ICT resources into the learning and teaching of secondary mathematics through hands-on experience in developing them, which embrace audio-visual teaching aids, web-based materials, computer software packages, online learning platforms, learning and teaching apps etc. This will enable participants to design multi-sensory and interactive learning packages and teaching aids so as to cater the needs of different learners and facilitate effective mathematics learning.
The medium of instruction is Chinese.
