Inaugural Lecture: Prof. Tony Croft - Making it all add up! The changing landscape of mathematics su

During the past twenty years mathematics support has evolved from a 'cottage industry' to become an established part of the provision of a well-found university. In this lecture, Professor Croft will chart its development and highlight the many ways that students’ experience of higher education has been enhanced as a consequence.


During the past twenty years a change has taken place in universities throughout the UK and beyond. There has been a realisation that within all institutions there are now students who have not had the opportunity to develop fully the mathematical skills required for success in their courses, and who need additional help beyond that traditionally provided. Mathematics support has evolved from being something of a cottage industry to become an establshed part of the provision of a well-found university.

Today, mathematics support addresses institution-wide priorities such as quality enhancement, employability and skills, the first year experience, flexible delivery, inclusivity, support for postgraduate students, the national STEM agenda and the student learning experience.

In this lecture, Professor Croft will chart the development of mathematics support through the nineties up to the present day and illustrate the many ways that students’ experience of higher education has been enhanced as a consequence.
