14 Feb 2017: Thomas Wong @ University of Melbourne

Learning and Teaching Seminars
Mathematics and Statistics Learning Centre
University of Melbourne

Title: CALC 101 – A survival guide for first year lecturers
Speaker: 
Dr Thomas Wong, School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Melbourne

Date: Tue 14th February 2017
Time: 12:00 PM
Location: Evan Williams Lecture Theatre, Room G03, Ground Floor, Peter Hall Building

Abstract: Unmotivated students? Empty consultation hours? Low student participation? A first year classroom can be very unforgiving, even for experienced lecturers. During my time teaching as a graduate student, I explicitly targeted these issues via the use of several alternative teaching methods. Two techniques of particular interest are a LaTeX typesetting requirement for assignment submissions and the use of an online forum for students to promote student interaction. In this seminar, I will present my implementation of these techniques through a sample of the materials from the course.
