The university mathematics lecture: To record, or not to record, that is the question

The Athena European University is delighted to host this Thursday (19th of January 2023, 10 CET), Assoc. Prof. Maria Meehan, University College Dublin, Ireland, in collaboration with Innovative Teaching Education in Mathematics – iTEM, MathDigger Erasmus, and Pythagoras Erasmus.
 
The title of her talk will be ‘The university mathematics lecture: To record, or not to record, that is the question..’
 
“While recordings of lectures proved invaluable for students’ learning during the pandemic, as our university transitioned back to in-person teaching there was a call from some lecturers to remove the requirement to provide lecture recordings due to the perceived negative impact on attendance. Colleagues in other universities describe similar debates. In this talk, I will present findings from studies conducted with colleagues on the role of recordings in the teaching of undergraduate mathematics, from both before and after the lockdown due to the pandemic. As an education researcher and mathematics lecturer, I will discuss the implications for lecturers’ practice.”
