A comprehensive list of recent keynotes and invited presentations with the Australian mathematics teaching community can be found at my personal website: amiealbrecht.com.
I have three main areas of teaching interests:
1. Operations Research
2. Mathematics training of Education Students
3. Firstyear Service Teaching
Since 2003 I have been responsible, at various times, for the delivery of different firstyear mathematics service courses in internal, external or fully online modes.
