Section B – Research and Scholarship

(a)   Research outputs.

I work in three main areas:

(i)     numerical analysis and computational fluid dynamics, including the development and analysis of numerical schemes for the solution of problems arising in applied mathematics;

(ii)    mathematics and science education, at both school and university, and the school-university interface;

(iii)  teaching and learning, primarily in higher education.

Much of the output of this work is contained in the list of publications below, most of which are internationally recognised, reach an international audience, and are refereed on an international scale. The impact of this work is, in part, indicated by the numbers of citations:

·        work in the first (i) (91 publications) attracts citations on the Web of Science where these articles have a citation count of 558 and an h-index of 9;

·        on Google Scholar I have 1216 citations, and an h-index of 12;

·        on ResearchGate I have 770 citations, and an h-index of 11;

·        on Mendeley I have 612 citations across 128 publications with 375 readers, 14,346 views (ScienceDirect), and an h-index of 9.

The impact of work in areas (ii) and (iii) is mainly through a national and international audience of mathematics and science education practitioners in schools, colleges and universities, using my work for enhancement and enrichment. I have had hundreds of requests for reprints of articles and for material made available through articles. I have also refereed similar numbers of articles by authors who have cited my work, or who are extending or applying it.

 

The numbers of publications in each area is as follows:

(i)     computational fluid dynamics & numerical analysis: 85 publications;

(ii)    mathematics and science education: 303 publications;

(iii)  teaching and learning: 22 publications.

Section C – Teaching

1.     Teaching and leadership.

(a)   Quality of teaching and commitment to CPD.

·        Mentor for new staff (6 staff in total), 2001–.

·        Elected Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, 2001.

·        Qualified Teacher Status, 1984.

·        Postgraduate Certificate of Education, University of Reading, 1981.

·        Line manager for ~40 staff, including conducting Staff Development Reviews, Performance and Development Reviews, twice-yearly performance Reviews for Probationary Staff, Peer Observation and Mentor for teaching, outreach and administration duties, 2010-2015.

·        Consistently excellent student feedback, from SSLC representatives and module evaluation forms. Typical feedback comments:

o  “All students agree that Dr Glaister is well-prepared, organised and presents at a good speed.”

o  ”Dr Glaister has a good rapport with students, is approachable and enthusiastic and maintains interest during lectures. Dr Glaister allows/encourages questions in lectures.”

o  “Many students find the thorough nature of Dr Glaister’s lectures very helpful.”

o  “Handouts are really useful.”

o  “Everyone finds that the module is very well laid out and finds it interesting. People are understanding lectures and like the style of the lectures.”

o  “The notes given on this course are really helpful and are full of lots of examples which is great. The problem sheets are also helpful as are the solutions. The lectures are good and the pace of them is just right.”

o  “Enjoyable lectures and an interesting topic.”

o  The lectures were very interesting, well presented. Favourite module so far!”

o  “Interesting lectures, very good notes, easy to follow and understand.”

o  “Glaister is a legend! You know it’s all true.”

(b) Leadership in teaching and learning (see also Section D(b) for leadership in Head of Department role).

·        In 2014 I designed a new, additional interactive quiz for applicants to conclude the day, entitled ‘I’m a Transcendental – get me out of here!’ arising out of my publication a.26.

·        Introduced in 2008 a Teaching Fellow post with no research duties into the department. This initiative has proved to be an outstanding success, with the post holder receiving a University lump sum award, a School Award for Outstanding Contributions to Teaching and Learning (the only academic receiving this award in the School), and a University Award for Outstanding Contributions to Teaching and Learning (one of only four awards across the University), all in the first four years.

·        Director of Undergraduate Studies and Director of Teaching and Learning, 2001-2004, 2006; Senior Tutor, 2004-2007; Deputy HoD, 2009-2010; Head of Department; 2010-.

·        In 2004 I designed a new Visit Day Programme for undergraduate applicants (and their parents), including the development and delivery since then of an interactive quiz for applicants to conclude the day, entitled ‘Maths – 100% Proof’ which is very popular with applicants, as well as puzzles for applicants to try on arrival at the Visit Day. I received a University Award for this in 2007, and a further University Award for contributions to recruitment in 2008. The corresponding intake in 2005 increased by 50% over the numbers from previous years, which were roughly constant, and the numbers increased further so that current and more recent figures are double those from 2004 and earlier. Since 2009 I have also delivered a Visit Day Talk to applicants’ parents. As part of this I set about the task of improving significantly our marketing via our Departmental Brochure. This was written completely anew by a team comprising my newly appointed Admissions Officer, Director of Undergraduate Studies and myself, and this now showcases much better our undergraduate provision and the opportunities it affords.

 

(c)   Enhancement in programme/module development and delivery.

·        Introduction of placement opportunities in all programmes, including developing versions of all programmes ‘with a year in industry’. This has been informed by the work undertaken as part of National HESTEM Grant I was awarded for 2011-12: ‘Work Placements for Maths and Stats undergraduates – identifying formats that provide real employability skills and determining appropriate assessment processes for degree level accreditation’, and the outcomes contained in the final report. The work has been disseminated to HE through HESTEM and seeks to help institutions in setting up work placements for Maths and Stats students, and this has been presented at a Teaching and Learning Showcase at Reading. The impact of this work at Reading has been in terms of the strong influence the outcomes have had on how we have introduced and developed placement opportunities in the new programmes with a year in industry. The outcomes of the project include:

o   Written and video case studies of students describing the benefits of placements;

o   Definitions of placement formats and employability skills;

o   A table of minimum placement requirements;

o   Examples of forms, questionnaires, posters and promotional emails to students and employers;

o   A list of potential employers willing to contribute to give talks as part of the undergraduate curriculum;

o   A list of potential hosts of work placements/work shadowing opportunities;

o   Development of a ‘Toolkit for setting up credit-bearing placements to improve the employability skills of STEM students’ which is published on the HESTEM website and:

§  identifies how different types of work placement can be used and how a credit- bearing work placement might be incorporated into undergraduate degree programmes in mathematics or other STEM degree courses;

§  makes recommendations on protocol for appropriate assessment criteria and processes for skills acquired in order that work placements become a credit-bearing element of the curriculum;

§  makes recommendations to the Faculty of Science and other STEM departments across the university and further afield in setting up and assessment of a range of credit-bearing work placement types for undergraduates.

·        New modules introduced under my leadership since 2010 include Geometry, Scientific Writing and Mathematical Programming, Error Correcting Codes, Mathematical Physics, Numerical Solution of Ordinary Differential Equations, Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations, Coding Theory, Part 3 Project, as well as post-exams activities on programming in Matlab, careers and outreach (which I deliver). Each of these initiatives have been undertaken for strategic reasons, either to increase the attractiveness of our programmes in the undergraduate and international market, or to enhance transferrable skills and modelling skills to improve employability.

 

Other recent enhancement in the programmes and their delivery are described in (d) and Section D(b). Previous programme enhancements delivered since my last promotion in 1999 include:

·        Responsible for Departmental Teaching and Learning Plans, 2003-2006.

·        Responsible for the Self-Evaluation Document for the Mathematics Periodic Review, and the associated documentation for this, 2003.

·        Development and implementation (2002-2006) of the new undergraduate curriculum required in 2002 when the University moved from a structure of three ten-week terms to a different modular structure with twenty four weeks of teaching;

·        Responsible (jointly with one other member of staff) for the Self-Assessment Document, QAA Subject Review, 2000, and the substantial amount of documentation in the ‘base room’.

·        Leading assessment development, including introduction of skill-based modules, with significant written and oral communication components, open-notes examinations, projects – both individual and group-based, 2000-.

(d)   Supporting students’ learning and development.

·        Introduction in 2010 of weekly Personal Tutorial meetings in Part 1 between Personal Tutors and Tutees to (a) provide strong support for the school-university transition both in academic and pastoral terms, (b) develop a strong relationship early on between both parties, (c) to provide better monitoring of progress and engagement by students, and (d) to provide support for their Part 1 modules and enhance their transferable skills. This has been very popular with students who commented in a Staff-Student Forum: “Students think these are really helpful and enjoyable. It gives students the opportunity to go through material and raise any concerns they have.” Students had also requested that we provide smaller group tutorials (10-12) for Analysis with a member of staff dedicated to their group, and this has been introduced from 2012-.

·        In 2008 I enhanced our provision further by introducing a combined package of academic tutorials delivered by academic staff, and problems classes delivered by postgraduate teaching assistants.

·        I was the first person to take on the role of Senior Tutor in the School from 2007-2009, responsible, in addition to the advertised duties, for the introduction of iLearn (a tool for assisting tutors and tutees in the latter’s development), and developing and organising a system of achievement prizes. This followed my introduction of a Senior Tutor role within the Department, which I held from 2004-2007, prior to the implementation by the University of a School position in 2007.

·        Introduction and management of a weekly ‘Drop-in Maths Surgery’ aimed at providing support for Part 1 students on A level material which is an essential pre-requisite for Part 1 modules, 1998-. This was commended in the 2000 QAA Subject Review Report for Mathematics and Statistics: ‘A drop-in surgery, targeted mainly at first-year students, offers a valuable and well-used learning support, providing a source of immediate help in dealing with deficiencies in background knowledge of mathematics. Students can access this sensitively managed service directly on their own initiative, or may be referred by tutors who identify particular needs.’.

·        Introduction and implementation of a Diagnostic Test for Part 1 students to help them establish areas of weakness in A level material, and writing a primer on transition materials for Part 1, 1998-2009.

·        Design of a booklet and delivery of a presentation as part of the Part 1 induction for new students, ‘An A-Z of Mathematics’, 1998-2009.This was commended in the 2000 QAA Subject Review Report for Mathematics and Statistics: ‘Although the student handbooks, while comprehensive, are not always user-friendly, this is compensated by an excellent and imaginative pamphlet 'A to Z of Mathematics.'.

3.     Teaching Load

In each of 2011/12, 2012/13 and 2013/4 I supervised three Part 3 project students, and in 2010-16 I delivered the following lectures:

·        MA1GEO, Geometry (10 credits, 34 lectures, 40 students in 2010/11, 57 students in 2011/12, 50 students in 2012/13, 70 students in 2013/4, 32 students in 2014/5);

·        MA3NIO, Analysis of Numerical Techniques for Integration and Ordinary Differential Equations (10 credits, 22 lectures, 25 students in 2010/11, 30 students in 2011/12);

·        MA3NA2, Numerical Analysis (10 credits, 22 lectures, 50 students in 2012/13, 73 students in 2013/4);

·        MA3CV, Calculus of Variations (10 credits, 22 lectures, 102 students in 2015/16);

·        MA4AM Asymptotic Methods (20 credits, 44 lectures, 8 undergraduate students, plus PhD students, in 2015/6).

·        MA4AM2 Asymptotic Methods 2 (10 credits, 22 lectures, 6 undergraduate students, plus PhD students, in each of 2010/11 and 2011/12, 8 undergraduates, plus PhD students in 2012/13, 12 undergraduate students, plus PhD students in 2013/4).

·        Supervising two students on Teaching and Learning Placements in each of the summer vacations 2011 and 2012, developing videocasts for MA1GEO as an additional resource to support students.

·        MA1CAL/Personal tutorials (10 in each of the Autumn and Spring Terms of each year, 8 students).

 

The Geometry course was particularly challenging because of our blind student. This included 100+ pages of detailed notes written in LaTeX, 200+ Exercises with worked solutions written in LaTeX, 200+ ‘dynamic’ figures constructed using Geogebra, and made available in a ‘raised’ format on rubber for this student and as interactive programs for all students. In 2013/4 this module was revised significantly to enhance students’ learning even further by the development of ‘Beamer’ presentation files for notes and problems, with links to ‘vidcasts’ and ‘dynamic’ figure in Geogebra.

 

In the previous four years, 2006-2010, I gave over 600 lectures, representing six 10 credit courses in each year. All of these modules have been written from scratch, with exercises and solutions, for modules ranging from Part 1 to Masters level (all 10 credits): Calculus, Matrices and Vectors, Numerical Analysis, Calculus of Variations, Asymptotic Methods, Numerical Solution of Differential Equations and Dynamics. I have also developed materials and delivered courses on Maple, and Matlab, which were used as self-study materials for my Part 1 courses during this time, and I have delivered between 20-40 tutorials in each year. Three of these modules, representing 40% of the lectures delivered, were compulsory with large classes (100-150 students) and 30% had class sizes between 30 and 80.

 

In total, in the last 30+ years, I have given over 6000 lectures across 19 different modules. For each of the modules the lectures, exercises and solutions have been written from scratch when first delivered. The modules range from Foundation to Masters level (all 10 credits except one which is 20 credits): Calculus, Matrices and Vectors, Ordinary Differential Equations, Linear Algebra for Engineers, Numerical Analysis, Calculus of Variations, Asymptotic Methods, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Numerical Solution of Differential Equations, Geometry, Mathematics for Construction Management, Mathematical Methods, Communicating Mathematics, Engineering Mathematics, Dynamics, Applied Mathematics. I have also developed materials and delivered courses on Maple, Mathematica and Matlab, and have delivered countless tutorials, ranging from 20 to 60 per year. Seven of these modules (in bold, and representing one quarter of the lectures delivered) were compulsory with large classes (80-150 students); less than one tenth of the remaining ones were small classes (less than 30 students). Five of these modules (in italics) were proposed, designed and delivered by me for students on non-mathematics programmes as service/support courses.

 

Section D – Other activities

(a)   Outreach.

I have been instrumental in efforts on outreach, and for some time the only contributor in the Department, as the need to address the widening participation agenda and offer more outreach opportunities increased, in line with the expectations of the funding council. In 2004 I therefore proposed the introduction of the role of Director of Outreach, and have taken on that role since then, with a view to increasing our activity and impact in this area. Since becoming HoD in 2010 I have had the platform to expand activities substantially. We now have a programme which is planned to reach out to 500+ school students each year. The combination of Student Tutoring, the partnership with a local school and the STEMath Ambassador Scheme provides students interested in teaching with a platform and experience for applying to teacher training courses. The components of the outreach programme include:

·        I led a Regional Assessment Centre at Reading (one of a small number in England) as part of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications’ Mathematics Initial Teacher Training (ITT) Scholarship scheme, sponsored by the Department for Education, with mathematics-based and education-based face-face interviews, a discussion group, and a mathematics test, as part of the selection process for 250 Scholarships nationally, 2012 – 2015.

·        STEMath Ambassador Project – recruitment, training and management of a team of three to five student Mathematics Outreach Ambassadors in the Department who deliver outreach sessions in schools, and act as STEMNET student ambassadors, 2012-.

·        I have formed a partnership with the Head of Mathematics at the John Madejski Academy (JMA) in Reading to place mentors from the Department into JMA to act as tutors for their students, encouraging them to aim high as well as helping them improve their maths skills, 2012-15. In 2014-5 a total of 13 mentors contributed.

This scheme brings in around 100 students and around 5 teachers each year into the Department and includes direct contact with a range of schools in the South East.

·        Project In Mathematics Enrichment (PRIME), developing resources, masterclases, outreach sessions, careers information, including: ‘Internet Transactions–how secure are they?’, ‘Maths – just sum fun – Fibonacci numbers’, ‘Primes and Proof’, ‘Maths – 100% proof?‘, ‘Codes and Code Breaking’, ‘I’m a Transcendental – get me out of here’, ‘Careers involving maths -why you should take it’, 2004-. The resources are aimed at schools, and these materials have been made available through the STEMNET Ambassador Network, journal publications and SRO.

·        Students in Schools/Student Tutoring within Communications/Student Recruitment and Outreach. I have been a Steering Group member and alternate chair since 2001, and promote and support volunteers participating in this scheme in the Department, 2001-.
