ALTC AMS Professional Development Project

Wikis > ALTC AMS Professional Development Project

The ALTC Professional Development Unit aims to provide “national discipline specific” professional development for university lecturers and tutors teaching in the mathematical sciences. The project was developed in conjunction with the Australian Mathematical Society (AMS), and in consultation with a reference group representing the Statistical Society of Australia, Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers, Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, Australian Science Deans Council, the Australian Business Deans Council and Engineers Australia.

The 12 online Modules include  discipline-specific and best-practice strategies for teaching and assessment so as to enhance student engagement and learning in mathematics.
