Using IT when teaching mathematics classes

With the help of Peter Rowlett, I am going to run a workshop in Nottingham on the afternoon of Friday November 19th. There will also be contributions from Sally Hanford and Brett Bligh.

Details are available on the page

where you can register via My Academy.

Using IT when teaching mathematics classes

A workshop offered by the HEA MSOR Network and the University of Nottingham as part of the National HE STEM Programme Mathematical Sciences Curriculum Innovation Project

Date: Friday 19th November

Location: Room C42, Dearing Building, Jubilee Campus, University of Nottingham

Experience has shown that one of the most successful ways to deliver mathematics lectures is by working through handwritten notes and examples. This workshop will explore ways that technology can enhance this process. Tablet PCs offer a modern approach to chalk and talk that can replicate most of the best features of writing on a board while allowing improved delivery, such as being able to annotate existing notes and insert graphics such as circles and lines into diagrams. Using a tablet opens up new opportunities, such as integrating software into lectures and recording onscreen content as video with synchronised sound for later viewing and distribution.

This workshop will demonstrate methods of teaching from a tablet and recording lectures as screencasts that have worked successfully at Nottingham. The focus will be on the approach taken and the effect on teaching practice rather than the technical details, although asking technical questions will be possible. Some examples of screencasts that have been produced are available, see
