Brigidine teachers, Ms Garvey and Mrs Holtz, recently presented at the Research Partner Schools Program Showcase on their findings from an exciting research project on collaborative learning.

The project investigated the benefits of collaborative problem solving in Mathematics in Year 7; the transition year from Primary to High School.

The Showcase included 13 Catholic schools around Queensland and was partnered with researchers from The University of Queensland.

After doing such an amazing job, our teachers have been invited to the upcoming Science of Learning Research Centre (SLRC) Symposium at The University of Queensland to share their findings further afield.

The Science of Learning Research Centre is a special research initiative of the Australian Research Council.

The centre is bringing together neurologists, psychologists and educational researchers for a two-day symposium at the Queensland Brain Institute.

This event is being held on the 1st and 2nd of November and features keynote speakers from the University of Melbourne and the Australian Council for Educational Research.

The symposium is open to the public and you are welcome to register to attend: click here

All the best to Ms Garvey and Mrs Holtz for next weekend when they present again. Thank you also to Mr Cornwall for supporting the project. What talent we have here at Brigidine College!
