Visible Learning for Mathematics Introduction

This workshop demonstrates how using the right approach at the right time helps 
you more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning. Participants will explore the role of clear learning intentions and success criteria as well as the kinds of rich mathematical tasks and mathematical discourse central to each phase of learning.


Surface Learning in Mathematics

Surface learning is the essential foundation that sets the stage for deeper learning. This workshop focuses on practical classroom strategies and routines for surface learning in mathematics. Participants will explore different approaches and participate in exercises most appropriate to surface learning.


Deep Learning in Mathematics

In deep learning, students begin making generalizations and connections between mathematical ideas and can begin to plan, investigate, and elaborate on their learning. Participants will walk through different approaches and participate in the exercises that promote deeper learning. 


Transfer Learning in Mathematics

In mathematics, transfer learning is the phase in which learners move from “doing mathematics” to using their understanding of mathematics to solve problems in new and novel situations and contexts. This workshop explores the importance of transfer learning, the paths that transfer learning can take, and the conditions needed for  transfer learning. 


Making Mathematics Learning Visible for All

We know that one of the greatest challenges teachers of mathematics face is that their learner’s readiness, abilities, and needs can be all over the map. This workshop helps teachers identify and address each learner’s individual needs; covers formative assessment, feedback, and intervention across all phases of learning; and shows how to have students take ownership of their learning.
