Focused on research in mathematical education

Our work covers a broad spectrum of educational research within higher education mathematics, statistics and data science. We focus on assessment in higher education and on the development and use of technology.

Online assessment

The University of Edinburgh is the home of the STACK project, a world-leading online assessment widely used in HE mathematics and wider STEM subjects.

Development and evaluation of pedagogy within HE mathematics education contexts

We undertake research into broader pedagogy within HE, including the use of flipped classroom, hybrid online learning and mastery learning approaches to education

Statistics and data science education

We undertake research in statistics and data science education, statistical computing, reproducible research, open-source education.
