Fall 2021

We are excited to continue another year of learning together in the Mathematics Learning Research Group (MLRG). As in previous years, we want create a space where graduate students can share their work, solicit feedback and new ideas, rehearse upcoming presentations, and hear from faculty members about their work process. Our is hope that MLRG is a place not only to share our work that is farther along, but also to share our ideas that are "half-baked" or still developing. We want this to be a space where we can support one-another in all aspects of our work. 

We have some pretty exciting ideas for this year in MLRG. One of them being not just focusing on the R(esearch) but also on the L(earning). We are planning twice a month this year with one meeting focusing on people sharing research and one meeting focusing on speakers coming in to share all types of things relevant to our community. 

Our tentative meetings will be from 11am - 12:30pm EST on the first and third Fridays of the month (see below for exact schedule). We plan to meet in person in 212 North Kedzie with the option to join via Zoom. Our plan for the time will be roughly 30 minutes of informal lunching and spending time together and 60 minutes of sharing. This is to accommodate both the variety of speakers and the need for us to spend time together as a community after so long apart. We will communicate ahead of time the exact time of the speakers.  

We can’t wait to see you all and learn with you all again.
