Practitioner Research in Mathematics Education (PRiME)
Recent national initiatives, such as the Maths Hubs, are promoting teacher research in mathematics education across primary and secondary sectors. This is in addition to more established routes for post-graduate and doctoral practitioner research.
The aim of this event is to provide a forum for practitioner researchers to meet and share their projects with a focus on broadening research skills to support systematic approaches. The day is organised and supported by BERA Special Interest Groups on Mathematics Education and Practitioner, in collaboration with the British Society for Research in Learning Mathematics (BSRLM).
The day will begin with a keynote by Dr Alison Clark-Wilson, who will report on her work looking at practitioner research in mathematics education from around the world.
The day will include a range of invited presentations by new and experienced practitioner researchers on a variety of themes related to mathematics education, which will be chaired to support focused discussions.
In addition there will be a choice of practical research methodology workshops, led by Alf Coles, Charlotte Webb and d’Reen Struthers to explore the challenges faced by practitioner researchers, with an emphasis on methods of data collection and analysis that can lead to worthwhile conclusions on classroom practices.
