This is a space for teachers at all stages of their career and lovers of learning. Tune in as hosts Justin and Stas unpack different concepts and research that impact the way students learn, the way we teach them and the way we can maximise both.

A member of the physics research group that discovered the Higgs Boson, Justin swapped his research career for one in teaching. Now, he dedicates his talents to changing the terrible truth that he experienced as a classroom teacher: despite teachers’ best efforts, too many students were graduating with little to no understanding of mathematics. At the Maths Pathway office, Justin works tirelessly to ensure the Learning and Teaching Model is translated into the best possible tools, content and classroom routines.
