This week I speak to Professor Janette Bobis from the University of Sydney where she is Professor of Mathematics Education and Research Director for the Sydney School of Education and Social Work. During the interview we discuss the following topics:

  • Student engagement in mathematics
  • Motivating children to be interested in mathematics
  • How she became interested in mathematics education
  • What research teaches us about how children learn mathematics
  • Her approach to educating future teachers

In the course of the interview she referred to videos about teaching that are available from the University of Washington's website. Here is a link to those videos: http://tedd.org/mathematics/  (and not the ones I initially thought: https://www.youtube.com/user/uwcoe/videos).

On this week's programme I bring you the second part of my interview with Dr. Marco Snoek from the Netherlands about teacher education. In this part of our discussion we talk about 

  • Boundary crossing between school and university.
  • Boundary crossing between principal and teachers within a school
  • Competence-based teacher education
  • The three goals of qualification, socialisation and subjectification in education as articulated by Gert Biesta: http://www.brunel.ac.uk/people/gert-biesta and http://www.gertbiesta.com/.
  • Practice in teacher education – referring to the work of Pam Grossman
  • Teacher supply and the status of teaching
  • What inspires him

I also bring you a clip from my recent interview with Professor Pam Grossman, which I could not fit into that programme. Finally, I bring you a clip from David Berliner where he talks about self esteem and education. Again, I was unable to fit this into interview 1 or interview 2 with David Berliner that were broadcast in 2016.
