[Listen to me saying this in podcast episode 12 - Special issue of Maths, Stats and OR Network newsletter.]
Today we sent to the printers our special issue of the newsletter of the Maths, Stats and OR Network, MSOR Connections, themed around work undertaken as part of the National HE STEM Programme. This includes work organised by the Network under the Mathematical Sciences HE Curriculum Innovation Project and work organised by other HE STEM Partners.
There is a section containing reports on what work we and others are supporting to address the recommendations from the HE Mathematics Curriculum Summit. Other work undertaken as part of the Programme is themed around areas of activity: graduate skills; employer engagement; mathematical thinking; technology; inclusive curricula; engineering maths; and, outreach and widening participation through schools and colleges.
As well as full articles and short reports, throughout the issue ‘Projects in brief’ give a hint of the wide range of work in mathematics supported by the National HE STEM Programme. I am pleased that this issue of MSOR Connections, which is widely read by a HE mathematical sciences practitioner audience, will showcase the work that has been completed and will be undertaken this academic year as part of the Programme.
This special issue will be volume 11 issue 3 for the autumn term 2011. MSOR Connections is freely available via the MSOR Network website. Academic and academic-related staff from UK higher education institutions can register to receive a printed copy.
