A Strategy for the Use of Technology To Enhance Learning in Maths, Stats and OR.
Bishop, P.; Davies, Neville
In January 2000 a network of discipline-based centers was established for higher education in the UK, including a Mathematics, Statistics & Operational Research (MSOR) Network which will: support and enhance academic practice in teaching MSOR; coordinate networks of MSOR academics; disseminate innovation and good practice in learning, teaching and assessment; create a forum for the exchange of information, ideas, philosophies and research findings; and exploit and harness change associated with new technology, integrating this into pedagogic developments. The presentation will outline our current and future plans to take full advantage of technology to make teachers of Mathematics, Statistics and Operational Research more effective in Higher Education. The prize will be that students will be educated to their full potential in these subjects. (Author)
