Mathematical Education of Engineers (MEE - 2011)
England (East Midlands)
This conference is the seventh MEE to be held at Loughborough for the exchange of ideas, practices and pedagogy in the mathematical education of engineers. This conference aims to reflect the progress and experiences of initiatives within the teaching of mathematics to engineers in recent years and to debate areas of known concern. This meeting will provide an opportunity for participants to network with specialist colleagues and learn together from current practice. A one-day format is led by two main contemporary themes:
1. How might we best teach Maths to Engineers?
2. What Maths should we teach Engineers?
These keynote sessions will be supported by parallel sessions covering case studies; pedagogic outcomes from practitioners, enhancements from the use of technology; experiences and reflective studies on enhancing interaction and different learning methods. Contributions from accepted speakers will include curriculum development, improving understanding of engineering mathematics and meeting the skills expectations of graduate engineers.
