Comments from participants.
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
