to UK Mathematics Content Workshop - 9th September 2009

Many thanks to all of you who took the feedback survey. I've had a
look at the responses and they're really helpful (as well as being
mostly positive).

In fact, I'm intending to publish them because they are so useful for
the purpose of the workshop. The responses were anonymous, and it's
not possible to identify who said what (although guesses could be

However, if anyone thinks they may object to this, please do let me
know soon.

Here's an example of what would be published:

What benefits would you like from a future workshop?
# Response Text
1 More demonstrations/ demonstration facilities (crowding round a
screen over lunch doesn't work).
2 (see below)
3 A larger focus on student experience.
4 See 3. below.
5 The same as from this workshop.
6 More technical insights, e.g. how are people converting TeX to XML?
7 The most useful thing for me was talking to other publishers, and we
quickly discovered there was quite a difference between textbook and
journal/papers publishing. For me to get maximum benifit from a future
workshop, it would be useful to have another couple of textbook
publishers there if possible.
8 Update of further progress and new issues, information about funding
9 Collaboration in development of tools and methodologies for e-maths
10 Some proposed directions, action items, problems to be solved etc
before hand would help in being able to think about the issues better
before the day.
11 Even more focused topics/problems might be useful.
12 A body to recommend standards in mathematical content, especially
when this is becoming so important in schools that require a virtual
learning environment and ePortfolio system.
13 More networking between clients and customers, publishers and
solution providers.
14 keeping up to date with developments and current issues.
15 More on the potential applications in teaching. Some hands on

best regards
