Grant Description

Summary and Description of the grant

The MAGIC (Mathematics Access Grid Instruction and Collaboration) project commenced in 2006 and is aimed at sharing postgraduate courses in mathematics for PhD students using access grid technology in a virtual room setting. The consortium currently has 19 universities as partners throughout the UK, with both small and large mathematics departments fully involved in the delivery of the programme in addition to their students being able to take fully participate in the lectures. The courses are given in the Autumn and Spring terms and cover all areas of mathematics. More details about MAGIC and the lecture series programme may be found at http://www.maths.shef.ac.uk/magic/index.php . From September 2011 MAGIC is planning to introduce a number of changes to the way it manages its operations. The changes affect the committee structures with the formation of a Management Team and a single overall Director of MAGIC who will be supported by administrative and technical support staff. This will result in a more efficient managerial structure and together with MAGIC partners contributing towards the running costs, this will enable MAGIC to become self sustaining in the longer term. On the academic side, the changes will allow MAGIC to consolidate its course provision and improve quality. The range of courses available will facilitate members to be able to offer at least 100 hours of formally assessed training courses to its students in line with EPSRC's expressed aspirations regarding the training of DTA funded students.
