A Brave New World
Tuesday 6 to Wednesday 7 September 2016 at Loughborough University
The aim of this conference is to promote, explore and disseminate emerging good practice and research findings in Mathematics, Statistics and Operational Research (MSOR) teaching, learning, assessment and support. The conference will appeal to all those teaching Mathematics, Statistics, Operational Research or Numeracy, whether this is to specialist mathematics students or students studying components of mathematics within their degree programmes (such as bioscience, chemistry, computer science, economics, engineering, nursing, physics, psychology, social work, etc.).
This year’s conference is entitled “A Brave New World” reflecting the changing financial landscape, including the completion of the current HEFCE-funded sigma project, as well as the Government’s new focus on teaching excellence. The conference will explore ways in which learning and teaching in MSOR is developing to meet the challenges it faces.
