Abstract

Postgraduate research students in university mathematics departments often teach undergraduates mathematics while they pursue their own research. This paper reports on a mathematics-specific 10 learning hour introduction to teaching for post-graduate mathematics research students. There are two strands to the paper: (1) presentation of the course design, delivery and data; (2) a discussion of the claim that such a course could not ‘train’ them but that it did offer them opportunities for ‘education’.
