Emerging Mathematics Instructor Workshop

  • Start Date: 05/16/2016
  • End Date: 05/20/2016
Speakers from the Universities of Manitoba, Regina and Winnipeg will share ideas on everything from technology in the classroom to issues of academic integrity. There will also be guest speakers from the University of Manitoba’s Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning.

University of Manitoba


This workshop aims to gather graduate students from across the Prairies (Manitoba and Saskatchewan) who are interested in issues of teaching and learning, and who plan to move into post-secondary teaching positions.


During the workshop, we will do reading, research, reflection, and writing about issues of undergraduate mathematics education. Participants will get exposed to a variety of literature from various publications relating to mathematics education, as well as guest speakers who have expertise in the field. Students will learn in an interactive environment, focused on open discussion and group work, and will be given the opportunity to practice their classroom techniques in front of an audience of their peers. At the close of the workshops, participants will have a deeper knowledge base of theoretical and practical issues of pedagogy and student learning, will have finished writing a teaching philosophy, and will be awarded a certificate of completion.
