Through a community initiative supported by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences and the Heads of Departments of Mathematics Sciences (HoDoMS) and endorsed by the Royal Statistical Society, the Operational Research Society and the London Mathematical Society, we are delighted to announce that in September 2019 the two-day Induction Course for lecturers new to teaching mathematics and statistics within Higher Education will once again take place. The Induction Course for New Lecturers in the Mathematical Sciences has been designed by the mathematics community so that it is ideally suited for anyone who is new to or has limited experience teaching mathematics or statistics within UK higher education. It will be delivered by individuals with significant experience of teaching in the mathematical sciences and will focus upon the specific details and issues that arise in mathematics and statistics teaching and learning within higher education including topics such as: • Lecturing. • Supporting student learning. • Making teaching interactive. • Assessment, examinations and feedback. • Linking teaching & research. • Using technology to enhance teaching and learning. • Using examples and mathematical problem solving. Additionally there will be significant opportunities for delegates to discuss their own ideas, challenges and experiences with the session facilitators so that individual queries can be answered.
