How to Make Mathematics Relevant to First-Year Engineering Students: Perceptions of Students on Student-Produced Resources
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 47, No. 1 (2016) pp. 29–44
Many approaches to make mathematics relevant to first-year engineering students have been described. These include teaching practical engineering applications, or a close collaboration between engineering and mathematics teaching staff on unit...
Tablet technology to facilitate improved interaction and communication with students studying mathematics at a distance
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 31, No. 4 (October 2012) pp. 363–385
Teaching and learning of mathematics is challenging when lecturer and students are separated geographically. While student engagement and interaction with the course, with other students and with the lecturer is vital to mathematics learning, it is...
"I'm Worried about the Correctness:" Undergraduate Students as Producers of Screencasts of Mathematical Explanations for their Peers-- Lecturer and Student Perceptions
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 44, No. 7 (2013) pp. 1045–1055
Undergraduate mathematics is traditionally designed and taught by content experts with little contribution from students. Indeed, there are signs that there is resistance from mathematics lecturers to involve students in the creation of material to...
The Effectiveness of Resources Created by Students as Partners in Explaining the Relevance of Mathematics in Engineering Education
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 49, No. 1 (2018) pp. 31–45
First-year engineering students often struggle to see the relevance of theoretical mathematical concepts for their future studies and professional careers. This is an issue, as students who do not see relevance in fundamental parts of their studies...
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 46, No. 4 (2015) pp. 521–532
Students who are studying introductory statistics units but are enrolled in non-statistics majors often struggle with the content, and do not stay engaged. Support structures are in place at many Australian universities to help these students. Most...
ASCILITE - Australian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education Annual Conference 2013 (2013) pp. 278–282
Despite the importance of mathematical skills in quantitative disciplines, high failure rates in first - year university mathematics subjects have been observed in many parts of the world. Mathematics support provisions are established in many...
Reframing E-Assessment: Building Professional Nursing and Academic Attributes in a First Year Nursing Course
Learning, Media and Technology Vol. 33, No. 3 (September 2008) pp. 169–189
This paper documents the relationships between pedagogy and e-assessment in two nursing courses offered at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia. The courses are designed to build the academic, numeracy and technological attributes...
Enablers and Barriers to Academic’s Acceptance of Technology: Can “Individual Differences” Make a Difference?
ASCILITE - Australian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education Annual Conference 2013 (2013) pp. 607–611
With the advances in technology the higher education sector is rapidly evolving. While some researchers are predicting the University of the Future to be more virtual, many academics at the coal face are still struggling to embrace emerging...
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 42, No. 7 (2011) pp. 939–949
Tablet technology has been shown to support learner-centred mathematics education when this technology is available to both the lecturer and the students. However, cost is often the barrier to students' use of tablet PCs for their university studies....
Australian Senior Mathematics Journal Vol. 24, No. 1 (2010) pp. 38–51
According to "Standards of Excellence in Teaching Mathematics in Australian Schools," excellent teachers of mathematics need to create "an environment that maximises students' learning opportunities"; so that they can encourage self-directed...
