Conference on Mathematics Education

In April 2019, a conference on Mathematics Education took place in Utrecht. The conference brought together mathematicians, lectures of Mathematics in higher education and educational experts. New trends and innovations in Mathematics education have been explored and discussed. Over 60 participants attended the conference. The first day of the conference focused on Digital Testing of Mathematics, Learning Analytics and Blended and Online Learning of Mathematics. Hans Cuypers (TU/e) opened the 4TU.AMI workshop officially by welcoming the participants. He soon gave the floor to Annoesjka Cabo (TUD). She stressed the challenges of increasing number of students at the universities, whereas funding remains behind. How to teach this growing group of students and simultaneously increase learning outcomes are high on the agenda. A lot of topics on mathematical education will come by at this conference. It is important to think what the goals are and then how to achieve them: collaboration is crucial. Conferences provide an opportunity for people to meet each other and to share information. Support in all universities and from companies is required to implement innovations in a sustainable and a scalable way. Finally, she mentioned to not forget to stay connected with other fields. She ended with the note that passion about teaching, and the related development, is definitely there!

The conference started off with topic .…….
