Advanced Course 2. Mathematics Teacher Education and the professionalization of Teaching
General information

From June 17th to 28th, 2019
Advanced course's information

Coordinator:  Berta Barquero, Universitat de Barcelona

This course focuses on the key role of didactics in teacher education and the experiences carried out at different instructional levels during the past decade. We will take as a starting point professional teaching problems and study the possibilities of locating them at the core of pre-service and in-service teacher education proposals.  We will use two main concepts, firstly that of profession (as opposed to "semi-profession"), and secondly, the concept of problems of a profession, which refers to the difficulties one has to deal with when practising a profession. We will see the capacity of didactics to help teachers address these problems, and discuss the different teacher educational proposals provided by the ATD and the Theory of Didactic Situations (TDS).

The course is structured in lectures and parallel workshops in English and Spanish. During the second week, some collaborative activities are organised: a students' seminar to discuss participants' research works: a teacher educators' seminar to share teacher education proposals based on ATD or other frameworks; and more informal working and interacting activities.
