Professional competencies that mathematics teacher educators should have: Reflections from a workshop

As part of a larger project aiming to develop a framework of competencies for mathematics teacher educators by utilizing a Delphi approach, the purpose of this study was to investigate what a group of experts think about the competencies that mathematics teacher educators should possess. The data were collected in a workshop with 10 experts coming from mathematics teacher education programs and non-governmental organizations. Findings revealed a set of competencies about the works and identities of university-based mathematics teacher education faculty as teachers, researchers, and community leaders.

Yemen Karpuzcu, Seçil; Işıksal Bostan, Mine; Department of Elementary Education (2017)
The aim of this study was to examine an in-service middle school mathematics teacher’s mathematical practices in teaching slope, linear equations and graphs in a technology enhanced classroom environment while enacting an instructional sequence that was designed based on the national curriculum. The technology utilized in the study was GeoGebra materials within computers that were developed by the teacher and the researcher to be used for the instructional sequence. The data was collected during the spring ...
Investigation of Using Online Video Case Discussions in Teacher Education: Sources of Evidence of Mathematics Learning
Osmanoglu, Aslihan; Koç, Yusuf; Işıksal Bostan, Mine (2013-03-01)
The purpose of this study was to explore pre-service and in-service mathematics teachers' analyses of student learning in a video case of mathematics instruction via an online learning forum. The study was conducted in the context of three different mathematics methods courses in a 4-year college in the Midwestern United States. Twenty-six students (19 undergraduate and 7 master's students) participated in the study. As a course assignment, the participants were asked to watch and discuss a video case of ma...
