Learning and Teaching Workshop at Cardiff

I’m off to Cardiff tomorrow to tell them about my uses of IT in teaching mathematics, as one of the sessions in a Learning and Teaching Workshop there.

Here is the PDF file I will be using for my talk: Lecture Capture in Maths

This week Cardiff School of Mathematics will be welcoming 3 visitors from the University of Namibia (UNAM) Mathematics department as part of the Phoenix Project. (The Phoenix Project is one of the five University flagship engagement projects. For more details on the project visit http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/about/our-profile/our-values/engagement/transforming-communities/the-phoenix-project and http://blogs.cardiff.ac.uk/hallje/category/phoenix-project/.

To coincide with the visit, the School will be hosting a Learning and Teaching Workshop taking place on Thursday 23rd April, in Room M1.02.  (See outline agenda below). The discussions will revolve around the learning and teaching of large groups, and although some of the speakers will have experience of this in Maths, it will focus more broadly on the general engagement of large group teaching, and therefore would be of interest to teaching and support staff outside of the discipline.

Outline agenda

1.00-1.10pm Introduction: Tim Phillips, Cardiff School of Mathematics

1.10-1.40pm Martin Mugochi, University of Namibia – Overview of UNAM Mathematics
