If you only have one day to spare for your professional growth, spend a day with NCSM.
Seminar presenters actively engage participants and guide them through adaptable research-informed practices, strategies, models, and concepts that effective mathematics education leaders need to know and integrate into their work. Leave the seminar with practical and inspired ideas and actions that will prepare you to lead and support others throughout the year.

The 2015 Fall Seminars will present the theme: IT'S TIME: Using Imperatives to Support and Motivate Leaders in Mathematics Education: Shifting Beliefs and Mindsets
"For leaders in mathematics education, understanding the role that beliefs play in the work of teachers is crucial to providing targeted guidance and support for teachers of mathematics…A teacher's mindset can influence his or her approach to teaching mathematics…Like nurturing a guiding vision, leaders and teams of leaders must attend to shifting beliefs and mindsets of those who impact school mathematics programs" (It's TIME, pp. 12-14).

During the one-day seminar, participants will

  • Address the beliefs and mindsets that guide actions and determine willingness to change.
  • Learn, explore, and discuss teacher and student mindsets related to learning mathematics.
  • Think about and discuss the following questions:
    • Do we address the teaching and learning of mathematics with a fixed mindset or a growth mindset?
    • How does this impact our actions as leaders of mathematics?

Fall Seminar Features

  • Rich and engaging content explicitly designed for mathematics education leaders
  • Practical suggestions and specific next steps for site work
  • Research-based strategies for getting results
  • Materials, resources, and strategies to use in your setting
  • Networking among leaders from other states and countries
  • Continental breakfast and lunch the day of the Seminar

We invite you to join us as mathematics leaders striving to lead in a time of change and to create an impact on the development of the effectiveness of mathematics teachers.
