MEI works with schools, colleges, teachers and students overseas as well as in the UK. Some examples of our international work are outlined below, and we are open to exploring new ways of supporting mathematics education around the world.
We have been involved in several international projects and developments, often in an advisory capacity. Examples include:
Team Manager for Mathematics, Bahrain Polytechnic
We offer a range of CPD courses, and are happy to explore the possibility of offering courses overseas. For example, MEI has provided training for teachers in Malta which focussed on developing schemes of work, lesson planning and collaboration, and including the use of ICT.
Our live online professional development courses, run by the Further Mathematics Support Programme, can be taken by people based in other countries. This is especially helpful for teachers who are teaching UK specifications or who intend to return to the UK in the near future. Please see the Live Online Professional Development (LOPD) section on the Further Mathematics Support Programme website.
Several of our text books are used by international colleges and universities. Foundations of Advanced Mathematics is especially useful for entry level courses.
Our Online Integral Mathematics Resources can be accessed from other countries. We are currently working on resources for the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) specification. Please contact us for more information about the CIE resources.
The MEI Annual Conference is an opportunity for teachers of mathematics to experience a wide range of professional development workshops and presentations. International teachers are welcome to attend.
We also contribute to international conferences such as ICME11 (International Congress on Mathematical Education). You may be interested to see examples of our papers on web-based learning and professional development.
Members of MEI’s Further Mathematics Support Programme team presented papers at the International Conference on Technology in Mathematics Teaching (ICTMT) (International Congress on Mathematical Education). The papers were on "Using live online technology to engage mathematics teachers' in professional development" and "Using live online tutoring to provide access to higher level Mathematics for pre-university students" and can be accessed in the Conference Proceedings document.
