Distinguished Visiting Professor Talk Series: Paola Sztajn, North Carolina State University, November 4, @ 4pm in Olin 372
Title: Learning from systematic descriptions of mathematics professional development Abstract: In this talk I present emerging results from a systematic review of publications on mathematics professional development. The research team reviewed over 170 papers published between 1992 and 2010 to address the following research questions: What do we know about the design and conduct of mathematics PD being studied by researchers and how are these PD characterized in research reports? The conceptual framework included six elements: theory, context, goals, content, format, and activities.
