Office for Learning and Teaching - Enhancing the Training of Mathematics and Science Teachers Program

Inspiring mathematics and science in teacher education

Indicative Funding
$297,874 over 3 years (administered by University of Queensland)
This project will develop and disseminate new interdisciplinary approaches to mathematic pre-service teacher education. The project has two overarching aims. The first aim is to foster genuine, lasting collaboration that unites mathematics, science and education scholars across the disciplinary boundaries that have previously divided them. The second aim is to institutionalise new ways of integrating the content and pedagogical expertise of education processionals and discipline professionals in mathematics to enrich three key stages in the preparation of teachers - recruitment into teaching careers, participation in the pre-service program, and continuing professional learning following graduation.
