Advanced Course 4. Research in Didactics at University Level
General information

From July 15th to 26th, 2019
Advanced course's information

Coordinator:  Ignasi Florensa, EUSS UAB

University mathematics education (UME) designates a heterogeneus set of didactic practices, occurring in a variety of higher education institution (HEIs). A number of conditions are involved in these institutions that are not shared by secondary and primary education institutions, such as the proximity of scholarly knowledge and teaching practice, the fact that teaching is not the only activity performed in HEIs, the responsibilities assumed in the elaboration of curricula and syllabi, etc.

This course will present recent investigations in the field, addressing some didactic issues that appear to be specific to the teaching of mathematics at university level. Some of them concern the design and implementation of instructional formats to teach mathematics to mathematicians or as a service subject (to engineers, economists, scientists, etc.). Others relate to the analysis of the didactic transposition process and the apparent strong inertia of  mathematical programmes and syllabi. Finally, we will address the new problem of university teacher education.
