The Learning and Teaching Methods and Knowledge Technology Section of the 34th Nationwide Conference of Scientific Student Associations was held between April 15th and 17th, 2019 in Esztergom, at Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
During the opening ceremony of the Conference, Bereczky-Zámbó Csilla, Muzsnay Anna és Szeibert Janka, students at Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Science, prize winners from our Foundation in 2018, received the opportunity to report about their participation and experience at the 42nd Annual Meeting of Psychology of Mathematics Education held in Umea, Sweden, in July 2018. You can see the presentation here (PDF, PPTX). The report provided the participants of the Conference with relevant and interesting information about the details of a high level international conference.
At the Learning and Teaching Methods and Knowledge Technology Section of Nationwide Conference of Scientific Student Associations, 158 students participated and presented their work, altogether 149 lectures were held in 22 divisions. Our Foundation offered a special prize again this year to support participation and holding a lecture at an international conference of teaching methodology or education technology in natural sciences or mathematics. The decision about the winner was made by the Professional Committee of the Learning and Teaching Methods and Knowledge Technology Section.
Last year’s awardees of the Foundation, Bereczky-Zámbó Csilla, Muzsnay Anna és Szeibert Janka, have again come up with an outstanding performance. In four divisions (Theory and practice of developing study materials in teaching special subjects; Methodology of mathematics teaching; Learning and support in higher education; Integration of learning areas), they held five lectures, and gained two first prizes, one second prize, and two special prizes (in one of the papers, together with Török Tímea, also of Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Science). The Professional Committee could hardly have made any other decision but awarding the Foundation’s prize to support the international conference participation to them.
Congratulations to all of them and their supervisor, Dr. Szabó Csaba, Professor of the Department of Algebra and Number Theory of Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Science, Institute of Mathematics. We hope that our support may contribute to their successful career of teaching and research, and we will be very interested to hear their insights about another international experience.
