The London Mathematical Society (LMS) has, since 1865, been the UK's learned society for the advancement, dissemination and promotion of mathematical knowledge. Our mission is to advance mathematics through our members and the broader scientific community worldwide.

The LMS will be running two workshops on mathematics communication: a session taking place in person (no online attendance) and an online session (no in-person attendance).

Mathematicians and maths communicators Ben Sparks and Katie Steckles will lead these interactive training sessions, covering the skills and techniques required to communicate maths effectively. They will also share their expertise in delivering interactive and engaging sessions.

Each workshop is limited to 20 people and is open to anyone who participates in, or wants to participate in, public engagement and communication activities in maths. You’ll have the chance to hear and share advice, discuss the principles behind good engagement, and develop and deliver your own interactive online demonstration.

The in-person workshop will take place in the Alan Turing Building at the University of Manchester, and the online event will take place via Zoom (ticketholders will be emailed the link in beforehand). As places are limited, it is not possible to attend both workshops.
