SUMS discussion group formed

A number of colleagues, interested in scholarship of teaching and learning of mathematics, have formed a discussion group. This arose from conversations among a few of us in Dundee, and then with colleagues in St Andrews.

So far, we are: Ewa Bieniecka, Hiroko Kamei and John McDermott (Dundee) and Tom Coleman, Aidan Naughton, Valentin Popov and Antonia Wilmot-Smith (St Andrews).

After a little scratching around via email, we managed to hold our first meeting on 29 April 2019, by arranging to attend the talk Thinking about group work? in St Andrews on that day, by Anne Tierney.

We hold our second meeting in Abertay University on Friday 7 June, at the Annual Meeting of the Scottish Maths Support Network.

For now, at least, the group will use this blog to post items of interest around SoTL / Maths Education. We may hijack the name (Hard) SUMS too, if we can decide on a version of the acronym/title we like!
