Teacher Change in Response to a Professional Learning Project
McDonough, Andrea; Clarkson, Philip; Scott, Anne
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
This paper reports on change in teachers' perceptions of important elements of their role as teachers of mathematics at the conclusion of a two-year professional learning project. Analyses of written responses to survey items indicated shifts in four categories describing important elements of their role: teaching skills, knowledge, concepts; developing problem solvers; facilitating learning by providing quality activities, tasks, and resources; and fostering positive attitudes towards mathematics learning. Teachers attributed these perceived changes to the integration of a number of components within the project. (Contains 4 figures.)
