The Svhool of Mathematical Sciences of Dublin City University hosted the 4th Irish Workshop on Mathematics Learning and Support Centres on Friday the 4th of December, 2009.

The theme of the workshop was ‘The Use of Technology in Mathematics Support’. We focused on the use of technology in mathematics support with speakers reviewing a wide range of different approaches and also addressing core issues such as the relative value of computer-assisted learning and the optimum manner in which to integrate technology into teaching.

Dr. Martin Greenhow of Brunel University, London gave the keynote address.


Supported by: National Centre for Excellence in Mathematics, Science Teaching and Learning (NCE-MSTL)DCU Centre for the Advancement of Science Teaching and Learning (CASTEL), DCU Learning Innovation Unit (LIU), National Digital Learning Repository (NDLR), All-Ireland Society for Higher Education (AISHE) and SIGMA-CETL Centre for Excellence in Mathematics and Statistics Support in the UK.


A paper summarising the work done at the workshop was written by Dr. Eabhnat Ní Fhloinn and was published in MSOR Connections. A copy of it can be downloaded here.
