Heads of Departments of Mathematical Sciences in the UK
Minutes of the Committee Meeting held at 11am on Friday 16 January 2009 at De Morgan House, London.
Present:
Andrew OsbaldestinChairTony MannSecretaryDavid SalingerViceChairPeter GiblinImmediate Past ChairTony WicksteadTreasurerSteve BucklandDerek GoldreiCathy HobbsAlison HooperDuncan LawsonNigel SteeleElizabeth Winstanley
1. Apologies
Apologies were received from Stephen Donkin, Dugald Duncan, Jeff Griffiths and Jeremy Levesley. Nigel Steele sent apologies for his late arrival.
2. Minutes of meeting of 17 October 2008
The minutes of the meeting held on 17 October 2008 were agreed as a true and fair record, subject to the correction of one typo, and were signed by the Chair.
3. Matters arising
The actions had been carried out. On item 4,work on the school to university transition leaflet was progressing with the help of More Maths Grads. On item 6, AHOs reply had been published on the web.
On item 8, the CMSHoDoMS survey of mathematics departments, PG reported following a meeting with Martin Smith of CMS. The results of the December 2007 survey would be published but the intention was to put things on hold. CMS was reluctant to put further resources into the project. It was agreed that we need to find out what can be found from available HESA data (though DG reported that HEFCE think the HESA data unreliable!) Possible ways forward might be a smaller survey every three years or a sample survey of reliable departments, but neither of these was satisfactory. SB reported on similar issues with the COPS survey of statistics departments: those who regularly responded tended to be those in good health. In statistics, big departments were getting bigger and smaller ones were disappearing, but the COPS survey didnt entirely reflect that reality. The conclusion was that, without CMS funding, there was unlikely to be a survey this year, which was generally regretted. PG would take this forward with Martin Smith, and it was agreed that if PG could find someone to investigate HESA data HoDoMS would provide some funding.
[ACTION: PG]
4. Correspondence / Chair's communications
(a) Michael Thompson of Sheffield University had written asking whether HoDoMS could supply data of average staff workloads. AHO had responded with information about the HoDoMS survey but it was felt that HoDoMS could not gather this kind of data. DL suggested that an enquiry could be made to the MATHSHEADS list and AHO would write to suggest this.
[ACTION: AHO]
(b) John Blake had written to AHO asking to come to conference to tell HoDoMS about the National STEM Programme, the successor to the More Maths Grads project. This offer had been accepted.
5. 2009 Conference
The conference would be held on April 23 at Birmingham University Conference Park.
The following speakers had already confirmed: David Harman (EPSRC), Sue Pope (QCA), Dame Julia Higgins (ACME), Michael Grove (MSOR Network), Sir Martin Taylor (Royal Society), John Blake (National STEM Programme). There would also be a substantial slot for the launch of the Juno Code of Practice. AHO was waiting to hear from Brian Davies (LMS) and from the Government. David Abrahams (IMA) was now unable to come.
Suggestions for further speakers included David Willetts, the Shadow Secretary for Innovation, Universities and Skills; and the new HEFCE Chief Executive. AHO would continue to work on the programme.
[ACTION: AHO]
It was agreed that the conference fee would increase to 170, or 120 for the first representative from a member institution. The fee had remained at 150/100 for many years and gradual small increases were preferable to a sudden large one. TM would send out the registration form along with a membership renewal reminder. TW would suggest some changes to the wording to facilitate electronic payment to the correct account.
[ACTION: TM, TW]
TW reported that membership renewals were coming in. Against 45 payments last year, he had received 32 payments by cheque and 7 others had notified of their intention to renew. He would have information on BACS payments shortly.
6. Juno Code of Practice for Mathematics Departments
CH outlined the background to the project. The LMS Women in Mathematics Committee had been keen that the maths community should have a code of practice (CoP) relating to women in mathematics similar to that of the Institute of Physics. A working group had been set up including CH, AO, JL, Gwyneth Stallard and Peter Clarkson. The proposed CoP was based on the IoPs Project Juno but the working group was trying to make it more inclusive; discussions were continuing with the next meeting scheduled for 4 February. The CoP would be more disciplinespecific than the AtheneSwan Charter but would be equivalent, and would be geared towards students as well as staff. There would be a slot at the conference at which the CoP would be launched.
7. Watching briefs
There was nothing to report or add to the report previously circulated except where listed below.
7.1 (JMC) AHO reported that JMC had met in November. It now has professional secretarial support. The GCSE issue and changes to Alevels had been discussed.
7.2 (ACME) TM circulated a report from Alice Rogers. The second GCSE would have its first sitting in 2015. After DL had explained the difference between a trial and a pilot, in QCA terms, views were expressed that it was not very satisfactory that the introduction of the second GCSE was so far away. AHO noted the uncertainty over the mathematical component of the Advanced Diploma in Science. PG would shortly be representing HoDoMS at a residential meeting on the future of Alevels.
7.5 (QAA) There were rumours that there were pressures on the QAA to become more aggressive in its audits. DS reported on the conference on the future of the UK Doctorate at which he had represented HoDoMS. The MMath benchmark had been out for consultation. Most responses had been positive with most comments referring to (different) single points. As a result of the consultation one change would be made to the draft and QAA will publish the final version shortly.
7.6 (MSOR) This watching brief had been further expanded and now included UMTC, Widening Participation, More Maths Grads and STEM.
In addition to his written report DL reported that the University Maths Teaching Conference was not taking place this year. It was agreed that UMTC could be removed from this watching brief.
The More Maths Project is going apace. It will finish in January 2010. There is to be a national STEM project, including also employer engagement and workforce upskilling, with 20M funding over three years, starting 1 August 2009. The host institution will be Birmingham University. Maths would have a strong input, with Michael Grove currently seconded for two days a week. A series of consultation events with the STEM community are being planned for February. The bid papers have to be with HEFCE by March 20th.
7.7 (EPSRC) JL had submitted a written report and DD had sent comments. DS noted that his view of the changes to the First Grant Scheme was less positive than DDs. PG reported that there would be a call for two Doctoral Training Centres in mathematics. There was an intention to move to longer and larger (Lola) grants. NS reported that David Abrahams of the IMA was strongly opposed to the resulting concentration on a small number of institutions. It was agreed that our concerns would be raised with David Harman at conference.
7.8 (IMA) NS added to his written report. There was now a Save the LMS website launched by opponents of the proposed merger. This website had deleted comments posted to it giving the case for the merger. The Charity Commission was more interested in the views of the Trustees of the Societies than in the numbers of members turning out, but AHO indicated that HoDoMS would encourage people to vote, whichever way they wished. He would send out a message when the Societies announce their referenda.
[ACTION: AHO]
Peter Rowlett, IMA University Liaison Officer, was building links with University maths societies. With NoelAnn Bradshaw at Greenwich, he had created a network of London University Societies. TM reported that they were finding it difficult to make contact with some universities.
Mathematics 2009 will be held at the Institute of Actuaries, but this venue will not be available in future.
The Zeeman Medal will be awarded to Ian Stewart on the evening of Tuesday 9 June at the Science Museum.
7.9 (RSS) SB reported that the RSS Centre for Statistical Education was moving to Plymouth, following competitive tender.
7.11 (LMS) EW would seek input from MATHSHEADS for the LMS Education Committee work on degree classifications. NS said the IMA would be interested in endorsing any conclusions from this work.
7.12 (TDA) EW mentioned the Masters in Teaching and Learning, being introduced with the aim that eventually all teachers will have an Mlevel qualification.
7.14 (Bologna and International Affairs) TM apologised for omitting to circulate DSs written report.
8. Date of next meeting
This would be Friday, April 3, 2009 at Birmingham University Conference Park.
9. Any other business
AHO noted that suggestions for the new Committee, to be elected at the AGM in April, would be welcome: TM would circulate a list of committee members with their dates of election.
[ACTION: TM]
AHO expressed his thanks to the current members. PG said this was one of the most interesting, friendly and useful committees he had ever sat on. AHO thanked PG for his guidance and wished DS all the best for his retirement.
