AustMS/AMSI Teaching Seminar Series
AustMS/AMSI Teaching Seminar Series
Date & Time: Wednesday 8 August 2018, 1pm (AEST)
Speaker: Dmitry Demskoy (CSU)
Title: A method of creating automated formative assessment by means of computer algebra, LaTeX and PDF forms
Abstract: I will explain a method of creating maths/stats assessments using a computer algebra system (e.g. Maple) and show  some examples of such assessments from the subjects I teach. The method requires some programming experience from the teaching staff, but allows creating individualised assessments that can also be automatically marked.  I will explore the potential benefits of this method to both students and staff.

Webinar: Virtual work integrated learning in engineering

Presenter: Dr Sally Male (UWA) (University of Western Australia, Australia)

The Virtual Work Integrated Learning in Engineering Project developed, tested and established an approach for non-placement engagement with engineering practice for engineering students (ecm.uwa.edu.au/vwil). Learning modules involve authentic tasks, virtual sites, simulations and/or electronic interaction with engineers. Learning modules, results of testing, and next steps will be presented.

Speaker: Yanan Fan (UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics)
When and Where: Thu, 06/09/2018 – 4:00pm RC-4082, The Red Centre, UNSW
(Please note this seminar is planned for Thursday and not Friday)
Title: ” Reflections from the 2018 School of Mathematics and Statistics Teaching Fellow”
Speaker: Laure Helme-Guizon (Dr H)
When and Where: Fri, 19/10/2018 – 4:00pm RC-4082, The Red Centre, UNSW
Gender and Education and Related Issues: Colleagues, we need to talk! @ UNSW

Title: Gender and Education and Related Issues: Colleagues, we need to talk!

Speaker: Yanan Fan,  School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW Sydney

Time: 4pm Thursday, 6th September

Place: Red Centre building, RC-4082 UNSW Sydney

Abstract:   In this talk Yanan will report on some international developments for gender equality in higher education from her recent attendance at the 10th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education. Based on some empirical data, she will then discuss how gender might influence teaching evaluation scores, and how men and women are evaluated differently.

About the Speaker: Yanan Fan is senior lecturer in the Statistics Department of the School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW Sydney.  She is an Athena Swan member and has a particular interest in the  role of unconscious bias in Higher Education.

Webinar: Mindful assessment design (HEA)

Presenter: Dr Samuel Elkington (Higher Education Academy, UK)

This session explores the concept of mindful learning as it applies to assessment design. We will cover the current thinking and evidence for promoting self-regulatory practices to reframe student-centred assessment as a primary vehicle for authentically personalised learning. This includes student sensitivity to context and new perspectives, intentionality of attention, managing personal responses to feedback, and resilience. The session concludes with some practical examples of mindful assessment design in higher education.

GEA – Gender and Education Association Conference
The conference theme is intended to provide a platform to critically engage with and interrogate the current political landscape in which debates about knowledge, authority, truth, power and harm are resurfacing and require feminist intervention. A central question underpinning this conference theme is: what does it mean to be pedagogical in a post-truth landscape? And how might feminist scholars work to intervene in this environment? The GEA 2018 conference will provide a forum to explore the challenges and strategies for educators, researchers and participants in higher education in these complex times.
When: 9 – 12 December, 2018
Where: University of Newcastle

MAV Annual Conference

Welcome to MAV18 – Our theme for this year’s conference is Teachers Creating Impact.

The Mathematical Association of Victoria invites you to the 55th Annual Conference (MAV18) in Melbourne from Thursday 6 – Friday 7 December 2018.

At the heart of MAV’s Annual Conference are teachers. Each year over 1400 mathematics educators including teachers, academics, policy makers, curriculum experts and resource developers come together to share their collective expertise, experiences and ideas. That’s what makes our conference great!

Learn from each other as we share best practice, new ideas and innovative approaches around how:

  • sharing action research and evidence is improving practice
  • technology can be used as a valuable tool to support teaching and learning
  • critical and creative thinking can be embedded into the classroom
  • networks and communities of practice can support excellence and improvement.

Don’t miss out on this invaluable opportunity at MAV18 to share and discuss excellence in maths while making social and professional connections in a dynamic
