Online Maths Support for Remote Learners – 3rd July 2019

Staffordshire University, 10:00am – 4:00pm

A FREE sigma Network event. We are delighted to welcome two experts from the Open University as our keynote speakers, Dr Tim Lowe and Dr Sue Pawley. Between them they will cover how they teach mathematics online and how maths students are supported remotely outside formal teaching time. It is anticipated that such a comprehensive overview will give delegates plenty of ideas and inspiration to apply to their own situations.

On the theme of supporting remote learners, attendees are invited to present 10 minute ‘show and tell’ talks about their experiences, which may be positive or negative. Time will be built into the programme for discussion and sharing of successful practice.

In the afternoon, after the second keynote speaker, hands-on workshops will offer attendees the opportunity to explore Blackboard Collaborate, Microsoft Teams and the use of graphic tablets as tools for online support.

A more detailed programme of the day will be provided nearer the time.

The event will start at 10am (first speaker at 10.40am) and will finish around 3.30/ 4.00pm. It will be located in the Staffordshire University Science Centre just around the corner from Stoke-on-Trent train station (a 2/3 minute walk). A buffet lunch is included, and attendees will be contacted individually regarding parking requests, accessibility and dietary requirements.

HOST:  Staffordshire University (Academic Skills Team, Library)
