Teaching Mathematics through Inquiry
A Continuous Professional Development Programme
I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Physics from the University of Malta in 1993 and taught Mathematics at secondary level in Malta for 23 years. In 2010, I was appointed Mathematics Head of Department and held this role for six and a half years. In 2011, I successfully completed a Master’s degree in Mathematics Education carried out with the University of Malta. My Masters' dissertation relates to how investigations can be integrated within the secondary school mathematics curriculum.
In 2016, I moved to the Faculty of Education at the University of Malta as a lecturer were I currently teach and do research on professional learning and development . Within this role, I work closely with teachers engaging and supporting them in lesson studies. I also support school leadership teams, and organise and lead professional development workshops for teachers. At present, I am also one of the University of Malta team leaders in the MaSDiV (supporting Mathematics and Science teachers in addressing Diversity and promoting fundamental Values) project. My research interests include inquiry-based learning, task design and the design and implementation of continuing professional development – aspects that I studied in my Doctorate degree with the University of Nottingham under the supervision of the late Professor Malcolm Swan, Professor Jeremy Hodgen and Dr Colin Foster.
