In this episode we hear from Dr. Duncan Symons who currently teaches at the Melbourne Graduate School for Education, University of Melbourne. Duncan does research in Primary Mathematics Education, Higher Education and Teaching Methods.

Duncan is passionate about inquiry and we speak at length in this episode about practices around inquiry that can improve student learning. We also get into some discussion around rural education and how to improve student’s perceptions of themselves as Math & Science learners.

Although at the University of Melbourne now, Duncan started his career in the class. He understands the practical aspects of teaching and learning, this shows in our conversation.
