Gwen Ineson, Dr

Reader in Mathematics Education at Brunel University

Gwen Ineson is a Reader in Mathematics Education at Brunel University London, where she is Deputy Head of the Department of Education. She supervises a number of doctoral researchers and her main teaching is on the primary PGCE, where she is responsible for the mathematics programme. She had worked in primary schools in North London for ten years, before moving into academia.

Gwen’s research has focussed on how preservice teachers understand mathematics and how that prepares them for teaching. Her most recent research work has concentrated on algebraic reasoning and the kinds of experiences in initial teacher education that influence the approaches that preservice teachers draw on in their own teaching of algebra.

Gwen is a member of the British Society for Research in Mathematics (BSRLM) and currently co-convenes the Early Years and Primary Maths Working Group. She had previously served on the BSRLM’s Executive Committee as Treasurer. She is a member of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics and is involved in the joint primary MA and ATM committee. She is an accredited Professional Development lead for the National Centre for the Excellence in Teaching Mathematics (NCETM) and is currently leading an ITE Work Group which is focusing on how ITE colleagues can support the successful mentoring of preservice teachers. She is also a convenor of the Mathematics Education special interest group at BERA.
