AMS Engaged Pedagogy Series

Through its new Engaged Pedagogy Series, the AMS provides mathematical sciences faculty with experiences and resources that strengthen them as professionals and empower their engagement with students learning mathematics. Offered twice a year–spring and fall–these online workshops can be inspiring opportunities to connect with others in the mathematical community who teach, engage in current applications of mathematics, innovate with curriculum, and learn how to use online and software tools.

Coming Fall 2023
