Comments from participants.

  • From my perspective it was the most effective and actionable professional learning in economics that I have undertaken.

  • All of it was really valuable. It was great to hear some of the activities Matthew does with his students.

  • I found the whole day very informative - I particularly liked the sessions on mapping and murals of economic concepts

  • I liked the conversation about how best to structure the HSC course. Also found the final session of the day valuable, discussing various tools, information resources and the monetary policy & fiscal policy topics.

  • Having not taught Economics before it gave me a great insight into how best to think about the syllabus as well as providing ways to present topics.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed Mathew's delivery, and he has excellent strategies to use in the classroom to engage the students with the content. That was one of my dot points. I walked out feeling inspired and with much more confidence, and I am ready to change my delivery and programs as I have a more precise concept of organising my lessons. A huge thank you to you for organising and to Matthew!!

  • Brilliant ability to clearly articulate clear course content and how adjust teaching strategy

  • Brilliant, Matthew was brilliant in explaining content and setting at a level that students could understand
