A Centre for Research in Mathematics Education Conference with expert input from Professor Keiichi Nishimura and colleagues, Tokyo Gakugei University, Japan.
The day will provide unique opportunities to explore approaches to maths teaching and learning, as well as maths teachers’ professional development, that are key to mathematical success in other parts of the world.
In the morning, we will experience a live and large scale, Japanese style demonstration lesson study with expert input from maths educators from Tokyo Gakugei University. A year 7 class, from a local school, will participate in a Japanese problem-solving lesson with content appropriate to both primary and secondary phases.
In the afternoon, there will be opportunities to take part in a choice of two from four workshop sessions led by teachers and researchers exploring what we might learn from other countries about a number of other important issues including text books, curriculum, and assessment.
The conference builds on lesson study research that we have carried in Nottingham in the LeMaPS project, as well as research across a range of our other research projects.
The cost for this event is £125 per person for a full day of lesson study, workshops, resources and catering. You can register your place online.
