Mathematics Teacher Education Online.
Gadanidis, George; Hoogland, Cornelia
Despite major differences in course delivery, the critical components of effective online mathematics teacher education may not be different from the critical components of effective face-to-face mathematics teacher education. Research indicates that components of effective mathematics teacher education include: aesthetic experiences with mathematics; confronting personal beliefs about mathematics; engaging in practical inquiry; discussing pedagogical implications in the context of mathematics education literature. This paper describes the case of an online mathematics education course for in-service elementary teachers, and discusses issues of design and effect of online experiences.
