Transforming Teaching Delivery and Student Support within the STEM Disciplines - 6 November 2013
In February 2013, with financial support from the Centre for Learning and Academic Development (CLAD), the STEM Education Centre established four Education and Research projects. While each project has adopted a different focus, all four are based around the theme of 'Transforming Student Delivery' and as such align with a core theme of the University Of Birmingham's Curriculm Review.
Furthermore, a summer project unidertaken within the University's Mathematics Support Centre by two undergraduates from the School of Mathematics has developed a range of electronic content to extend the support opportunities that are available to students studying components of mathematics and statistics across the University.
This seminar provided delegates with the opportunity to learn more abour just some of the approaches to transforming teaching delivery that are taking place across the University of Birmingham through these five projects.
