Funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF), the School of Education, UCC and the Irish Research Council-Funded Study: Re-imagininging Initial Teacher Identity and Learning

 (Rii-TIL) Study.

 

AIMS:

To build a coalition of interest in the FIRSTMATH study given its potential to inform both teacher education and mathematics education initiatives in Ireland.

 

PARTICIPANTS:

20+ Leading Mathematics and Teacher Education Researchers on FIRSTMATH and

 Key Stakeholders involved in Mathematics and Teacher Education.

 

What is FIRSTMATH?

FIRSTMATH is a cross-national study of novice teachers’ (i.e. years 1-5) mathematical knowledge for teaching and the influence of previous preparation, school context and opportunities to learn-on-the-job, on that knowledge.

 

IMPACT:

The results of this study will provide much needed empirical evidence about the influence of school context and on-the-job opportunities to learn on mathematics teachers’ knowledge, and on the nature of the knowledge that is useful in and for mathematics teaching students in diverse settings and school contexts.
