A major focus of our work is the professional development of in-service mathematics teachers. Unlike some approaches to teacher development, we don’t aim at passing on specific teaching techniques or approaches. We aim instead at building all-round capacities of teachers, and strengthening identities of teachers as professionals.
Ideally, teachers should shape their own professional development. We are interested in supporting such initiatives by teacher organizations. Researchers and other experts also contribute critical inputs for teachers’ professional development. In our research, we try to precisely identify some of these inputs.
