Program Description:

This programme is designed for UK and international mathematics teachers and other professionals working in mathematics education, from primary schools to post-16 education. You will be supported in integrating the theory and practice of teaching and learning mathematics by:

  • carrying out small-scale research projects, one of which can act as a pilot project for the major work of your dissertation;
  • engaging with research literature, especially the current journals and activity of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education;
  • engaging with new developments in teaching and learning mathematics;
  • updating your mathematics;
  • writing assignments that show the emergence of a theoretical frame, presenting a literature search and developing ideas from a seminar;
