The annual conference in Trondheim - Report

The first MatRIC annual conference was held in Trondheim 27-28 November, 2014. There were over 90 participants, from 35 institutions from within and outside Norway. People gathered to discuss teaching and learning of mathematics in higher education. The evaluation questionnaire sent to all participants has resulted in generally very positive feedback - and some helpful critical observations that will help as to improve next time round. We are already planning the next MatRIC conference to be held in November 2015.Read more
