Associate Professor Katherine Seaton, La Trobe University
The aim of this subject is to introduce those who will be tutors in the mathematical sciences to the theories, principles and practice of university learning and teaching in this area. This subject has been designed to provide practical, discipline-specific and best-practice strategies for teaching and assessment so as to enhance student engagement and learning in mathematics. Through a series of sequential online modules, supplemented by face-to-face workshops, we will examine how students learn in mathematics and how you can use this knowledge to plan your lessons and how you go about giving feedback.
