Women in education events

The IEU is hosting a number of women’s events

At the Women in Education forum and dinner in Port Macquarie in August Suzanne Penson, President of the Mid North Coast Branch will provide the opening address.

The guest speaker is Associate Professor Penelope (Pep) Serow, Project Leader of the Nauru Teacher Education Project, University of New England. Pep teaches Mathematics education to preservice and in service teachers within primary, secondary, and postgraduate programs.

Pep fondly looks back on her days teaching in rural NSW and brings many of these experiences to her research directions. These directions include ICT as a teaching tool in the mathematics classroom, mathematics curriculum development in developing countries, and building local teacher capacity in Pacific Island Countries.
