Mathematical logic develops the kind of thinking that is needed by the future planners of technical devices in order to have end-user friendly, logical technical applications. This creates an urgent need for workers with mathematical logic skills in European enterprises. The aim of this project is to provide high quality learning materials to help students and employees develop their expertise in mathematical logic.
We are hoping to engage with enterprises in the Midlands who perceive that there is a mathematical logic “skills shortage” with their own employees. We want to discover how this manifests itself in the workplace, and this will inform us when designing and deploying those educational materials. Once these are ready, they will be tested in real learning situations, and once again we will be hoping that local companies will be interested in trialling those materials.
All the material produced in the project will be placed on-line and be made freely available to all interested European educational institutions and enterprises.
