Education and Lifelong Learning
A story of paths just crossing or of meeting at a vanishing point? Prof Elena Nardi from UEA’s School of Education and Lifelong Learning (EDU) presents her inaugural lecture, drawing on her experiences as a mathematics education researcher and (non-research) mathematician to discuss a relationship between two communities – mathematics and mathematics education – that is often perceived as fragile. She does so through examples from 20 years of collaborative activity in research, teaching, professional development and public engagement.
The Schools of Study at UEA teach thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students each year across the four faculties of our campus in Norwich.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Education and Lifelong Learning.
If you haven’t already, check out our School pages on the UEA website.
Once you have registered online you will also need to attend a registration event (unless you are an undergraduate home student living in UEA accommodation, since you are registered automatically when you pick up your room keys)
We are very pleased you have decided to study with us. My colleagues and I look forward to working with you and to ensuring you have all the support you need to be successful in your studies.
We hope you will enjoy being a student with us and that you will take full advantage of studying in a School which is a leading centre for research and teaching in education, both nationally and internationally. There will also be plenty of activities across the University as a whole in which to participate. This is an opportunity for you to grow, and to develop your knowledge and skills in relation to your chosen course.
We trust this experience will enable you to either graduate and enter or re-enter employment or continue on to a research degree. You will meet many of my academic colleagues over the coming days and weeks – these include your personal adviser with whom you can meet regularly to discuss your progress and needs.
On a personal note I wish you every success in all your endeavours for the coming year and look forward to the opportunity of meeting you in person soon.
Professor Richard Andrews
Head of School
