The London Mathematical Society invites applications from people who would like to become Holgate Session Leaders, a scheme named in memory of Philip Holgate, who helped ensure the success of the LMS Popular Lectures.
The Holgate Lectures and Workshops sessions scheme provides session leaders who are willing to give a talk on a mathematical subject to groups of students or teachers. The sessions are not careers talks but are intended to enrich and enhance mathematical education. Each session leader should offer a range of sessions for those in primary, secondary or adult education. Around three or four sessions during each academic year are anticipated, with the possibility of doing more.
Session leaders and local organisers provide a short report on each session and are paid £450 per year as an honorarium. Travel expenses and subsistence costs, with any local costs of organising the session are covered. Appointment will be for a three year term. Applicants needn't be members of the LMS but might have a track-record in mathematics education or communicating with people learning and/or teaching mathematics outside of higher education.
