Profile
Name:  Professor Richard Noss 
About: 
Richard Noss is codirector of the London Knowledge Lab, an interdisciplinary collaboration between the Institute of Education and Birkbeck, two colleges of the University of London. He is Professor of Mathematics Education at the IOE, holding a Masters degree in pure mathematics and a PhD in mathematical education. He was cofounder and deputy scientific manager of Kaleidoscope, the† European network of excellence for technology enhanced learning, and is currently the director of the UK's Technology Enhanced Learning Research Programme funded jointly by the ESRC and EPSRC. Richard has edited and authored five books, including Windows on Mathematical Meanings: Learning Cultures and Computers (coauthored with Celia Hoyles) in 1996. His most recent book (coauthored with Celia Hoyles, Phillip Kent and Arthur Bakker and published in 2010), Improving Mathematics at Work: the Need for Technomathematical Literacies, questions the mathematical knowledge and skills that matter in the 21st century world of work, and studies how the use of mathematics in the workplace is evolving in the rapidlychanging context of new technologies and globalisation. Richard is a past editorinchief of the International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning and Series Coeditor (with Mike Sharples) of Technology Enhanced Learning, published by Sense publishers. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, an Academician of the Academy of the Social Sciences and in 2011, was elected a Foreign Fellow of the Union of Bulgarian Mathematicians. He is, since 2012, a Professorial Fellow of the University of Melbourne, Australia.
