MGSE mathematics team win award for best secondary teaching resource 2021
The Educational Publishing Association of Australia has awarded a digital educational product called "Pearson Diagnostic" the award for best secondary teaching resource for 2021. This product is based on MGSE mathematics education research conducted by Professor Emeritus Kaye Stacey, Dr Vicki Steinle, Beth Price, and Eugene Gvozdenko. They devised a set of formative online tests that may be used to diagnose mathematical conceptual understanding. The judges praised the system's creativity, uniqueness, and quality.
Janet Clinton endorsed as an AES Fellow
Professor Janet Clinton has been elected as a Fellow of the AES (Australian Evaluation Society), in recognition of her significant contributions to the evaluation discipline in Australia and New Zealand, most notably in educating emerging evaluators and directing the CPE and AES's highly successful partnership. The news was announced during the AES Annual General Meeting on 15 September, and a ceremony will take place next year. Congratulations to Professor Clinton on this tremendous achievement!

Join MGSE Learning Designer Edmond Washington for a regular MGSE Digital Lounge drop-in service.
The sessions are casual spaces where you can drop-in and out to ask questions or to say ‘Hi’! This is an opportunity for you to be in contact with a Learning Designer and ask any question you might have about Canvas, Zoom, Teams, or other learning technologies.
Edmond will do his best to answer all questions, and if he can’t answer immediately will get back to you with an answer as soon as possible.
The next sessions are:
Thursday 30 September 2021
