The Third Conference on the Practice of Teaching Undergraduate Mathematics

Reflect upon and share teaching practices, classroom innovations, and common challenges in our third conference between 25 – 27 July 2024 | Submit an abstract by 06 June 2024

UG Maths Practice

This annual conference is jointly hosted by Azim Premji University, St Joseph’s University, Bengaluru, and the Mathematics Teachers’ Association (India). It aims to bring together undergraduate mathematics teachers to share and reflect upon their teaching practices.

The emphasis is on creating a supportive community of teachers to have conversations about obstacles students and teachers face in the teaching and learning process, and pedagogical and other methods that help overcome them. 

The last date to submit an abstract is 06 June 2024.

We are no longer accepting abstracts.
