Learning and Teaching Workshop (Phoenix Project)
21 April 2015
This week the School of Mathematics will be welcoming three visitors from the University of Namibia (UNAM) Mathematics department as part of the Phoenix Project. The Phoenix Project is one of the five University flagship engagement projects.
To coincide with the visit, the School will be hosting a Learning and Teaching Workshop taking place on Thursday 23 April, in Room M1.02. The discussions will revolve around the learning and teaching of large groups, and although some of the speakers will have experience of this in Maths, it will focus more broadly on the general engagement of large group teaching, and therefore would be of interest to teaching and support staff outside of the discipline.

13:10-13:40 Martin Mugochi, University of Namibia – Overview of UNAM Mathematics
