Mathematics and Science Learning Centre
Promoting impact in the classroom
The Mathematics and Science Learning Centre at University of Southampton provides professional development opportunities for teachers, lecturers and support staff throughout their career. The Centre supports educators in identifying and implementing teaching and learning approaches based on the very best education research, evidence-based approaches and classroom practice. We work in partnership with schools and colleges across the South of England to harness best practice and enhance impact on students' learning.
The Centre works closely with the Mathematics and Science Education (MaSE) Research Centre to translate the world class research in Southampton Education School to strategies that can be used in schools and colleges.
