The LMS runs two annual workshops, for beginners and for advanced practitioners, on mathematics communication and outreach. For the past three years these have been led by mathematicians and maths communicators Ben Sparks and Katie Steckles as interactive training sessions, covering the skills and techniques required to communicate maths effectively. Katie and Ben also share their expertise in delivering interactive and engaging sessions.
The beginners workshop focuses on what is needed to get started in communicating maths to different audiences and is suitable for those with little or no experience in mathematics communication. The advanced workshop looks at how to build on and improve your existing skills and is for those with some experience and looking to take their activities to a new level.
Each workshop is limited to 20 people. The workshops are 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.
