Moving Mathematics Online – Creating High-quality Online STEM Content from Existing Sources

“Moving Mathematics Online – Creating High-quality Online STEM Content from Existing Sources” is a virtual professional development workshop for faculty teaching online and those wanting to become proficient in providing online courses and learning material.

The COVID pandemic has made teaching and learning material online a pressing issue, forcing all faculty to focus on how to deliver lectures, tutorials, exercises and exams. However, rushing materials online can lead to poor-quality content, poor maintainability by the authors, bad student experiences and insurmountable obstacles in making content accessible.

This workshop will teach you how to move your mathematical documents to the web. You will learn how to convert your existing material and how to render it in a browser. We will also work on techniques for authoring new content and creating online presentations and teaching material. During the workshop you will learn how to apply tools to convert documents containing formulas, how these formulas can be rendered and how you can customize your documents to improve the learning experience for your students and, in particular, how to make those materials accessible to help learners with special needs..
