North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (40th, Greenville, SC, Nov 15-18, 2018)
This paper reports on a project aimed at developing a system of professional support for the improvement of the Geometry for Teachers course that mathematics departments teach to preservice secondary teachers. We share data from interviews with 20 instructors to report on how they perceive their position of geometry instructors and the work they do in the course. To inspect this set of interviews, we use the framework of professional obligations to the discipline, to individual students, to the institution, and to the classroom community. We share how references to these professional obligations emerged in the interview data. [For the complete proceedings, see ED606531.]
