Good Morning All!

Apologies for cross-posting. This message is forwarded on behalf of Peter Rowlett.

Further to yesterday's email re: workshops, some of you may be interested in the funding call
(see below).

Thanks and best wishes for now...........Robert S


I am pleased to be able to announce the second funding call from the Mathematical Sciences
HE Curriculum Innovation Fund, operated by the MSOR Network as part of the National HE
STEM Programme.

This call is particularly directed to funding work that builds on proven innovative practice in
teaching, learning and assessment in STEM subjects and brings that practice to wider use in
mathematical sciences. Priority will be given to projects which attempt to transfer established
practice from a successful project in physics, chemistry or engineering, or which allow more
widespread use of innovative practice based on a successful project in mathematical
sciences. Funding is also available to facilitate and support innovation within the
mathematical sciences curriculum through projects which support the aims of the National
HE STEM Programme Mathematical Sciences Strand. Funding is expected to be at the level
of £5,000 but for a project which seeks to extend significantly the use of a proven curriculum
innovation into or within mathematical sciences, or has multiple partners, up to £10,000 is
available. The application deadline is 30 November 2010.

Full funding call notice and application form:

Registration for the following workshops is now open:

Using IT when teaching mathematics classes, 19 November 2010, University of Nottingham.
This workshop will explore ways that technology can enhance the delivery of mathematics.
Experience of using tablet PCs and screencasting will be shared and an opportunity to tour
Nottingham's Multi-Display Learning Space will be offered.
Further details and registration:

Embedding Graduate Skills in Your Mathematical Sciences Programme, 24 November 2010,
Sheffield Hallam University.
This workshop will explore approaches UK mathematical sciences departments have taken
to developing mathematics programmes to encourage the development of graduate skills
and encourage discussion of the place of skills development in the curriculum and what
makes a successful approach work.
