Short Description
This highly-participative short course covers the essentials of good knowledge exchange in the mathematical sciences. It focusses on developing skills relevant to the whole process of using mathematics to solve real-world problems, including: problem formulation; active listening; effective communication; and expectation management. It will also cover how to present your results and conclusions to a non-specialist audience in a clear and persuasive way.

 

In this course, participants will learn about how knowledge exchange happens in practice. We will discuss the various mechanisms by which this can occur such as Study Groups with Industry, collaborative projects, and internships, using examples drawn from our own experience. We will also briefly cover the preliminary step of convincing an industrial problem owner that it is worthwhile discussing their problem with a mathematician.

 

The material will be taught using a combination of short seminars, group work exercises, discussion, and guest talks by practitioners with experience of working in both industrial and academic environments. The group work exercises will take the form of problem-based case studies, for instance: summarising the key messages from reports of successful engagements with industry; investigating a dataset and presenting the actionable conclusions of that analysis; and pitching for further work.

 

A small amount of pre-course reading will be issued in advance.
