Ruth at bett - January, 2016 | Hamilton Trust

Our very own Professor Ruth Merttens is giving a talk at bett, ExCeL, London on Wednesday 20th January, 2016. Ruth’s presentation, ‘Mastery - where does it come from and how do we get it?’ takes place in the Primary Learn Live Theatre at 13.30pm.

In her talk, ‘Mastery - where does it come from and how do we get it?’ Professor Merttens will address some key questions:

  • What are the origins of this currently ubiquitous notion?
  • How do we achieve the required 'mastery of age-related targets' for all children?

Professor Merttens will recap the provenance of the concept of 'mastery' in educational psychology. She will then outline the five keys to success in enabling as many children as possible to master the new and challenging National Curriculum mathematics objectives. This is predominantly a pragmatic and practical session in which five pedagogical strategies for improving the teaching of mathematics will be described together with their relation to 'mastery'. The session is addressed to classroom teachers and maths co-ordinators, as well as those involved in senior management in primary schools. Read more on the bett website.

We hope to see you there!
