The 2015 Kansas City Regional Mathematics Technology EXPO
is scheduled for
Friday, October 2, 2015 and Saturday, October 3, 2015
University of Missouri - Kansas City
Kansas City, MO.
Keynote Speaker, Friday:
Robert Talbert is an Associate Professor in the Mathematics Department at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan USA. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Mathematics from Vanderbilt University At Vanderbilt, he was a Master Teaching Fellow for the Center for Teaching and received the B.F. Bryant Prize for Excellence in Teaching. Dr. Talbert is a pioneer in the use of flipped learning in university-level courses in mathematics and computer science. He has assisted in the redesign of several courses to implement flipped instruction at the university level. He has written several peer-reviewed articles on flipped instruction in calculus, linear algebra, transition-to-proof, and computer programming courses. He has served as a keynote speaker and workshop facilitator on flipped learning in the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, and France. His scholarly interests include the effectiveness of flipped instruction and the use of technology to support active learning environments in mathematics and computer science courses.
Find him on Twitter @RobertTalbert and at http://faculty.gvsu.edu/talbertr/Robert_Talbert,_PhD/Welcome.html He blogs for the Chronicle of Higher Education at Casting Out Nines, located at http://chronicle.com/blognetwork/CastingOutNines. He lives with his wife, his three young children, and three cats.
Invited Speaker, Saturday:
Henry Segerman is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Oklahoma State University. He received his PhD from Stanford University, and held post-doctoral positions at the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Melbourne. In addition to his work in three-dimensional geometry and topology, he is also a mathematical artist, working primarily in the medium of 3D printing. He has a deep interest in the visualisation of mathematics; making abstract concepts more accessible, both to students and the general public.Read about his 2014 Illustrating Geometry art exhibition http://scgp.stonybrook.edu/archives/11540.
