Increase student engagement with help from the MLC

In the courses you teach, I am sure you can call to mind particular students or groups of students who you know are capable but you wish you could help to engage at a higher level. For many students, their relationship with mathematics might be a key factor in how well they engage and how well they perform.



This is how I teach

This month we spoke with the four recipients of the 2021 Stephen Cole the Elder Award for Excellence, Professor Joanne Bowen (School of Biomedicine), Professor Natalie Edwards (School of Humanities), Kayoko Enomoto (School of Social Sciences) and Dr Thomas Wanner (School of Social Sciences), about their passion for teaching and their hopes for their students.



Mixed Cohort Learning

The MCL project supports classes with some students attending face-to-face, and others online, simultaneously.
