Upcoming event

Practitioner Research in Mathematics Education

The aim of the Practitioner Research in Mathematics Education (PRiME) event is to build the capacity of practitioner researchers through engagement with the wider research community. This event will:
• Provide an opportunity and a supportive platform for teachers of mathematics in early years, primary, secondary, further education or higher education to share their classroom research projects about any aspects of mathematics teaching and learning
• Facilitate critical discussion between practitioners
• Model multi institution collaborative and participative research projects
• Develop practitioners’ research skills through a panel discussion with established researchers
• Share information about opportunities available through BERA and BSRLM

This whole day online event will take place on Saturday 3rd February 2024. In a change to our regular Keynote format, we are delighted that a panel of researchers will share their experience of practitioner research around the theme of “Beyond mastery: social justice and teaching mathematics in the primary school context”. Panel members include Caroline Hilton (UCL Institute of Education), Gwen Ineson (Brunel University London), Balbir Kaur (University of Nottingham), Joel Kelly (The Blue School (C of E)), Laura King (University of Derby), Helen Thouless (St Mary’s University), and Pete Wright (University of Dundee). Discussion time will follow the short presentations to consider implications for practitioner research.

The day is organised and supported by BERA Special Interest Group on Mathematics in Education, in collaboration with the British Society for Research in Learning Mathematics (BSRLM).

We invite contributions from anyone engaged in close-to-practice research in mathematics education. The format of these sessions will allow for a fifteen-minute presentation, followed by ten minutes for questions. Presentations are welcome from researchers at any stage of their careers and we encourage you to take advantage of the friendly and supportive space to share your work. Please complete this short form to indicate your interest in presenting your work at this event.

The deadline for submission of proposals is the 11th of December 2023 and we will share the programme soon after. We look forward to receiving your proposals!
