Deb Carmichael has taught mathematics for over 25 years across all secondary year levels and in a variety of contexts. She has held Head of Department roles and Senior Executive roles. Deb is now a Senior Advisor at Independent Schools Victoria, working in The Development Centre. This allows her to use her experience, ideas, understanding of current research and passion for mathematics teaching and learning to engage and work with fellow educators. In Deb’s session we will explore five ways to include checkpoints and build responsiveness into your lesson plans to maximise student learning in your mathematics classroom.
