Dr Cristina Mio

  • Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education (Pedagogy, Praxis & Faith)

Biography

Cristina Mio, Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education (LTS)

Cristina has a PhD and a Master’s in Chemical Engineering from the “Università di Padova”, Italy.  After working as a researcher in chemical engineering in the US, at UC Berkeley and the Colorado School of Mines, and in the UK, at UMIST in Manchester, she completed a PGCE in Secondary Mathematics at the University of Manchester. 

Her teaching experience spans from lower secondary to A-level courses, from further education to higher education/university.  She taught Mathematics in Loreto Sixth Form College in Manchester (England), in South Lanarkshire College in East Kilbride (Scotland) and at the Open University.  From 2014 to 2018 Cristina was a teaching associate in the Chemical and Process Engineering Department at the University of Strathclyde, where she taught face-to-face and distance-learning undergraduate course, supervised undergraduate design projects and postgraduate research projects, and was Academic-Year Coordinator for first-year chemical engineering students. 

She has worked as a Lecturer in Mathematics Education (Initial Teacher Education) at the School of Education, University of Glasgow, since January 2019. She is currently joint programme leader for the Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE).

Research interests

  • Approaches to learning (deep/surface) in Mathematics and Engineering in Higher Education
  • Students’ autonomy and self-regulation in group projects in chemical engineering
  • The use of peer-assessment in large classes to increase students’ motivation
  • How teachers’ attitudes and approaches towards maths influence students’ confidence, motivation and belief about mathematics
  • Teachers’ pedagogical subject knowledge in Mathematics
  • Teacher Educator's identity
