I am at the conference Young Researchers in Mathematics 2011 at the University of Warwick and last night I gave the pre-dinner talk on ‘Innovation in mathematics HE teaching & learning’. I recorded this and it is available below.
Here is the abstract:
There are many issues in mathematical sciences HE teaching and learning that, if you are just setting out on an academic career or hoping to, you will need to address during your time as a lecturer. A lively discussion considered mathematics HE teaching and what might be expected from graduates of mathematics degrees. The talk gave developments – recently undertaken or that may be needed – in HE curriculum, drawing on examples from work funded by the Mathematical Sciences HE Curriculum Innovation Project, including from a high level Summit convened in January 2011 to discuss priorities in curriculum development in HE mathematical sciences. Details are given of a £150,000 funding call for curriculum innovation projects in mathematical sciences which is currently open to bids.
Recorded at Young Researchers in Mathematics 2011, 14th March 2011, University of Warwick.
The Mathematical Sciences HE Curriculum Innovation Project is operated by Peter Rowlett, MSOR Network as part of the National HE STEM Programme.
