Resource type Communication and Presentation Skills Course Pack
This Course Pack offers the resources from a course, titled Communication and Presentation Skills, which sought to teach students how to present numerate information, at an appropriate level, to various kinds of audience. The course sought to develop five key skills in particular: the communication of ideas through speech; the vocal skills needed to speak effectively; the verbal description of quantitative data; the oral interpretation of diagrams and graphs; and, engagement with the audience. The sessions involved active participation by the students, with teamwork an essential element. The materials for the Communication and Presentation Skills course were devised, written and delivered by Eileen Cunningham, Lesley Harper, Shamim Khan, Hendryk Korzeniowski, Gordon Blower and James Groves This resource is free for educational use at UK universities.

Resource type Developing Graduate Skills in HE Mathematics Programmes
A series of short case studies have been collected, each focused on specific graduate skills, providing examples of ways in which these have been successfully developed through curricular initiatives. There is a wide variety of work reported, both in terms of the skills developed as well as the type of courses and institutions involved. This report was edited by Jeff Waldock.

Resource type Further Work Developing Graduate Skills in HE Mathematics Programmes
A follow-up to the booklet 'Developing Graduate Skills in HE Mathematics Programmes', which offered exemplars of ways in which graduate skills had been successfully developed through curricular initiatives. Three projects reported here develop the earlier good practice - around employment awareness, presentation of written work and reflection and articulation of skills - and provide evidence that this can be transferred to new circumstances. Two projects develop maths-specific advice and curriculum resources around developing students' speaking and writing skills. This report was edited by Peter Rowlett.

Resource type Introduction to Developing Graduate Skills in HE Mathematics Programmes
The project Developing Graduate Skills in HE Mathematics Programmes collected a series of short case studies, each focused on specific graduate skills, providing examples of ways in which these have been successfully developed through curricular initiatives. This video is the introduction to a workshop disseminating the case study report by Jeff Waldock.

Resource type Teaching Students to Write Mathematics: video and other resources
Teaching students to write mathematics correctly is often neglected part of a mathematics degree. A workshop was convened by Kevin Houston to consider approaches to teaching this topic. A DVD was produced with videos of talks by Kevin Houston (University of Leeds), Franco Vivaldi (Queen Mary, University of London) and Mike Robinson (Sheffield Hallam University), along with further reading and sample teaching resources. At this website you can download and burn your own DVD or view the videos and other materials online. This website is not made available under a Creative Commons licence.
