At Young Researchers in Mathematics 2011, 14th-16th April 2011, University of Warwick, I gave the pre-dinner talk on the second night on ‘Technology in mathematics HE teaching & learning’. This is a demo of some ways people are including technology in their teaching, learning and assessment and follows the talk on the first night, ‘Innovation in mathematics HE teaching & learning‘, which was a lively discussion about university teaching.

Here is a recording:

There are many ways in which technology can be used to benefit students in mathematical sciences HE teaching and learning that you may wish to explore during your academic career. However, there are also ways in which technology can be misused, or a lot of effort can be undertaken to little or no benefit. This talk discusses developments in HE curriculum particularly relating to technology in teaching, drawing on examples from work funded by the Mathematical Sciences HE Curriculum Innovation Project, and discusses the process of determining when innovations are needed and whether they are effective.
