Professional Development for Higher Education
This page is dedicated to the CPD video resources for teachers in Higher Education.
Some are presented by colleagues from within Loughborough University's Department of Mathematics Education, and others by external experts within mathematics education.
If you are interested in resources for early years, primary and secondary, please return to the main CPD page.
Statistical Diagrams from Playfair to Nightingale
The earliest statistical diagrams were drawn towards the end of the eighteenth century by William Playfair and they feature in our everyday life and in our curricula to this day. Dr Chris Pritchard looks at the developments of statistical diagrams throughout history and the role they play now.
Comparative judgement in the mathematics classroom
Comparative judgement offers a novel approach to assessing important but fuzzy learning outcomes, such as problem solving and conceptual understanding. In this video, Dr Ian Jones introduces comparative judgement and how it can be used in the mathematics classroom.
Effective teacher professional development
Research is increasingly providing insights about how pupils learn. However, our understanding of how to design professional development in order to help teachers put these insights into practice remains limited. In this talk, Dr Sam Sims outlines a new theory of effective professional development.
Self Explanation Training and the Transition to Undergraduate Mathematics
This video by Lara Alcock looks at how studying Mathematics at Undergraduate level is often much different to the expectations of students where they are unaccustomed to studying the many theorems and proofs that appear in their lecture notes. This video explores how they can study more effectively.
