Teaching Seminar Series

AustMS/AMSI Teaching Seminar Series

The AustMS/AMSI Teaching Seminar Series is a nation-wide seminar series featuring talks and discussions about any matters related to the teaching of the mathematical sciences in universities.  The seminars are held online using Zoom videoconferencing software, allowing broad access by Australian academics. The seminars aim to engender discussion and foster best practice in mathematics and statistics education at Australian universities.

To participate in the seminars, please use this link:


See here for details for participating via a H.323/SIP videoconferencing system.

For more information, contact the organisers:

Dr Poh Wah Hillock (p.hillock@uq.edu.au
Dr Anthony Morphett (a.morphett@unimelb.edu.au)

We would love to join forces with already-established seminar series, colloquia or discussion groups. If you are keen to share with the maths community, or if you have ideas for future topics and speakers, then please get in touch.

Speaker: Tim Moroney (QUT)

Date & Time: Tuesday 24 September 2019, 1:00pm (AEST)

Title: Teaching first-year Computational Science with an emphasis on collaborative problem solving

Abstract: This talk will describe my experiences in designing and teaching a first-year unit in Computational Science at QUT.  While many students commencing STEM degrees have significant experience with programming, others commence their studies with little to no programming experience, and often little appreciation for the importance of computation and simulation across the STEM disciplines.  I will address some of the challenges in teaching a multidisciplinary cohort of Science, Information Technology, Mathematics and Engineering students with diverse backgrounds in programming and mathematics, and discuss some of the approaches taken in this unit, particularly regarding collaborative problem solving.
