Supporting postgraduates who tutor in mathematics support centres – 6th October 2016

The sigma Network in South West England and South Wales is offering a FREE training day for people new to tutoring in maths support centres, on Thursday 6th October 2016 at Cardiff University.

While aimed primarily at postgrad students, who are often deployed as maths support tutors, the day is equally relevant for anyone who is starting out in a mathematics or statistics support role in higher education.

This training is based on a well-established package developed by sigma and successfully delivered many times in recent years. The indicative content of the day will be:

10.30   Welcome and Introductions.
10.45   Mathematics support – what is it?
11.15   Problem solving session.
12.00   Principles of maths support – dos and don’ts
12.30   Lunch
13.30   Offering statistics support
14.00   Tutoring in a maths support centre – exploring possible scenarios and student needs
14.45   Resources and networking with others
15.15   Question and answer session
