Dr Elena Luchinskaya

Learning Developer (Mathematics and Statistics)

Professional Role

Dr Elena Luchinskaya is Maths & Stats Learning Development Coordinator within the Learning Development Team. Elena leads a team of more than 20 maths tutors. Elena's vision is to develop a tailored, proactive and inclusive service provision, which enhances students' experience, improves their academic performance and supports students in achieving their full potential.

The Maths Learning Development Team runs regular workshops that are integrated into a range of maths programmes in Engineering, Physics, Maths departments, the Lancaster Environmental Centre and the Management School. These activities are offered alongside more generic maths support, such as Maths Skills workshops for students without A-level maths, drop-ins and tutorials. The Maths Learning Development team also runs Maths Boot Camps once a term – a series of parallel workshops on algebra, calculus and statistics offered at basic and advanced levels.

This year Elena is piloting two new schemes – “The Academic Mentoring for SpLD students” and "The Peer-Assisted Study Sessions" in the School of Computing and Communications.

More information about the Maths Learning Development Team and activities it offers is available at http://wp.lancs.ac.uk/mathslearningdevelopment/.

Elena’s educational research interests are using technology in teaching and learning, blended learning, the impact of the use of problem-based learning (PBL), project-based learning (PrBL) and peer-assisted learning (PAL) on students’ competence development, academic performance and employability skills.

Elena is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
