Digital approaches in teaching university mathematics

Dr. Adam Metzler of the MS2Discovery Institute was mentioned in the Campus Updates Headlines of March 16.

“Old school” versus “new school” – it’s the question at the centre of a multi-year research project lead by Chester Weatherby, assistant professor in Laurier’s Department of Mathematics.

He has taken his passion for teaching excellence back to the math department, where he and Dr. Kotsopoulos lead the success in math committee along with Laurier colleagues Adam Metzler and Tina Balfour. The group facilitates roundtable discussions about math education and its growth for other math educators at the university.

“Laurier is an environment committed to teaching excellence,” said Weatherby. “As instructors, we have opportunities to learn how to improve our current teaching practices. This is just a great place to be a teacher.”
