Creativity and Emergent Educational-Futures Network (CEEN) Seminar - Professor Patricia McCormack (Anglia Ruskin University)

Professor MacCormack will present and discuss ideas from her latest book Ahuman Manifesto which is due to be published by Bloomsbury during 2019. At a time when we face ecological crisis and when new technologies and cultural inventions are putting the status of the “human” itself into question, Patricia will offer a sharp and original alternative to current versions of “posthuman” thought..

Seminar by Dr Laura Black (University of Manchester) Deepening Engagement in Mathematical Learning: A question of ‘identity’?

This seminar will focus on the concept of identity and its value for exploring both engagement in learning and alienation from formal schooling. I will draw on work from across our research projects which have looked at students’ relationships with mathematics in a variety of contexts, including post 16 A-level mathematics, mathematically demanding programmes at university and more recently in early primary school (aged 5-6 years old). I will argue that identity provides a useful way to understand how our experiences ‘in practice’ become crystallised (through reflection) into statements about who we are as a person – for example, ‘I did this well’ may become ‘maths makes sense to me’ and eventually ‘I am gifted at maths’. Our work in this area has considered how students’ mathematical identities are mediated by practices which are classed, gendered etc. Therefore, in this seminar, I will argue that researching ‘identity’ is not merely a matter of addressing the STEM agenda by increasing engagement (and participation) in mathematically related subjects, but rather it can provide a lens through which to study the function mathematics plays in re-producing broader social inequalities in education..

Seminar by Dr Colin Foster (University of Nottingham) Developing mathematical fluency: exercises or rich tasks?

Achieving fluency in important mathematical procedures is fundamental to students’ mathematical development. The usual way to address procedural fluency in the classroom is by repetitive practice of routine exercises, but is this the only effective way?. Full details
