Math Pedagogy LC
The 2019 spring Math Pedagogy Learning Community (LC) is meeting every Wednesday, at 12.30 pm in PH 330 (the math lounge), for a brown bag (bring your own food) lunch and friendly conversation about math pedagogy. The meetings are discussion based; there will (usually) be a set topic for the lunch, but participants are welcome to talk about whatever aspects of the topic they want. Some weeks will be open to free discussion, or the discussion of a pedagogy related article/talk/video, or any topics the participants feel are relevant. All levels of teaching experience are welcome and encouraged!
