Tony Croft

Director

Mathematics Education Centre

Loughborough University

A Centre for Excellence in the University-wide Provision of Mathematics and Statistics Supporta collaborative CETL withthe Mathematics Support Centre at Coventry University.


Background

  • Loughborough University has been developing mathematics support since 1996

  • Coventry’s Centre began as the BP Centre in 1991


Background

  • In 2002 LU established the Mathematics Education Centre

    • teaches mathematics to most engineers

    • offers university-wide maths support

    • has significant income from externally-funded teaching and learning projects

    • is developing a programme of pedagogic research


Background

  • In association with the former LTSN’s CU and LU have collaborated extensively:

    • mathcentre

    • mathtutor

    • Good Practice in the Provision of Mathematics Support Centres

    • LTSN MathsTEAM

    • DDIG



The CETL

  • The CETL will build upon this excellence to establish first rate mathematics support facilities for students at LU, CU and beyond.

  • The CETL will make a substantial contribution to the well-documented problems associated with mathematics at the transition to University.


The CETL

  • It is worth £4.5m.

    • £2m capital

    • £2.5m recurrent (over 5 years)


Developments within Loughborough

  • open a second drop-in centre

  • open two interactive classrooms

  • teach vulnerable groups in small classes making good use of learning technologies

  • develop statistical consultancy

  • develop support for students with special needs

  • develop pedagogical research


Developments within Coventry

  • relocate and enhance the drop-in centre

  • open an interactive classroom

  • teach vulnerable groups in small classes making good use of learning technologies

  • develop statistics support

  • develop support for students with special needs

  • develop pedagogical research


Developments beyond …..

  • Support the development of a Centre at the University of Leeds and two other HEI’s.

  • Secondments in and out of the CETL.

  • Extensive programme of dissemination and active engagement with the Higher Education Academy (incl. annual conference and network publications, website, enhancement to mathcentre site)


The Outcomes….

We intend:

  • that the CETL will raise the status of teaching and learning mathematics & statistics

  • to produce a thriving, world-class venture that is a model for the sector

  • to invigorate the learning of mathematics for many disaffected students.
