Course design

Teaching aims

  • Students master content
  • Students happy and engaged members of class
  • In mathematics subjects, we want students to master the course content. We also want them to develop their mathematical reasoning and their mathematical communication skills.
  • An essential component of developing these skills is seeing them modelled.
  • Part of the course design is deciding where this is going to occur.
    • Will tutors be giving instructor-led classes where they model this?
    • If tutorials are comprised of student group work, will lecturers be modelling through worked examples during lectures?
    • Alternatively, will there be extremely high standard worked solutions that model the finished solution, and annotate the reasoning required to get there?
  • Make these choices explicit to teaching staff and students.
