FYiMaths Annual Workshops
The FYiMaths network annual workshops provide an opportunity for mathematicians and mathematics educators to meet and share information, present recent research and exchange ideas on teaching practices and innovations. The workshops involve approximately 50-60 participants, interactive presentations, workshop discussions, networking opportunities, guest speakers and are attended by academics and educators from a wide range of backgrounds and stages of career.
The workshops have been held in June/July at the University of Melbourne since 2013.
