Last year, some members of the WeBWorK community presented/attended the EAMS conference and it was a great experience! We encourage you to propose a talk and/or attend this year. Below is the information:
The fourth international conference on E-Assessment in Mathematical Sciences (EAMS) takes place between 21st June and 2nd July 2021. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners with an interest in e-assessment for mathematics and science.
EAMS 2021 will again be an entirely online conference, following last year’s successful move to a fully virtual format. The conference will feature a mix of live sessions and web-based activities, with plenty of opportunity for discussion and collaboration.
As many of us have spent much of the last year delivering teaching and assessment online, EAMS 2021 presents an opportunity to share best practice, for experts in the field to present the latest developments, and for those new to e-assessment to get hands-on with software.
Live talks will take place over Zoom at 9am or 4pm BST (UTC +1) each day, with recordings available later. We hope that the online format and longer timescale will allow participants to engage more deeply with the material presented.
The call for talk and workshop proposals is currently open. If you have some research or an innovative technique related to mathematical e-assessment that you would like to present, then please submit an abstract at eams.ncl.ac.uk/call-for-speakers.
Many thanks to all who attended Tea Time #2! We had a fruitful discussion. The recording of the session can be found here.
TWP would like to start offering office hours so community members could get help with coding problems, maintaining the software and using the platform. If you have WW expertise, please consider volunteering to cover some of the office hours. Here is the sign up link.
The WeBWorK Project will have a virtual exhibit as part of the MAA exhibit booth at the Joint Mathematics Meetings. Please stop by to see us. The following zoom sessions are part of our exhibit, but we’ll also have asynchronous discussions and posts. Wed Jan 6, noon-1:00pm* WeBWorK Problem Authoring Session Thurs Jan 7, noon-1:00pm Introduction to WeBWorK Thurs Jan 8, 6:00-7:00pm WeBWorK Symposium (BYOB) – meet up with the WeBWorK community Fri Jan 9, noon-1:00pm WeBWorK Q&A and Show-and-Tell *(times listed are mountain)
Share your favorite WeBWorK problems/features and ask your questions in one of the zoom sessions or asynchronously through this slack channel.
