The panel discussion is entitled “Adults Learning Maths in the lockdown” and is being organised to coincide with Maths Week Ireland 2020. We have a panel of speakers from Ireland and the UK who have been working with adults developing mathematics in a variety of different contexts during the lockdown. They include people from training organisations working with young adults to teacher trainers and researchers working in universities.

The topic for discussion is “What was the main impact of working virtually when teaching maths to adults in your particular context and what might we learn from that experience?” More information on the speakers will be put on this page closer to the event.

We welcome all ALM members to join in and contribute to questions during the session.  So please register for Adults Learning Maths in the lockdown at
