Abstracts invited talks

Jan van Neerven - 'Transitions, Extremes and Climate'

In this talk I present an overview of the Zwaartekracht proposal TrEC (Transitions, Extremes and Climate). I will outline what the proposal is about scientifically speaking, and give an impression of how one actually sets up such a large multidisciplinary consortium.

Tracy Craig - 'The importance of embedding disciplinary education research within the discipline'

It is frequently the case that those who carry out research in disciplinary education, such as mathematics education, are education specialists of some sort and are not themselves primarily mathematics lecturers or teachers. Valuable as this type of educational research is, that carried out by academics embedded in the discipline itself has much to offer.

A distinction can be drawn between theoretical educational research, scholarship of teaching and learning and scholarly teaching. Lecturers located in a mathematics department are well placed to contribute substantively to scholarship of teaching and learning and all teachers of mathematics should have the opportunity to become scholarly teachers.

Ways of supporting scholarly teaching will be discussed and examples of scholarship of teaching and learning will be presented.
