Anthony Gerard Cronin, Cormac Breen

Abstract


In this article we give a short description of the 9th Annual Workshop of the Irish Mathematics Learning Support Network (IMLSN) Workshop. The workshop theme was ‘Maximizing the impact of digital supports in Mathematics Learning Support in Higher Education’. We briefly describe the Irish Mathematics Learning Support Network (IMLSN) and outline the factors that motivated this workshop theme. We will also discuss the presentations, some of the issues that were raised during the workshop and we close with some brief conclusions on this very successful event.
