Description

Update - workshop sessions now added

This is a Centre for Research in Mathematics Education Conference

With expert input from Professor Keiichi Nishimura and colleagues, Tokyo Gakugei University, Japan.

Japanese classroom   Learning maths

The day will provide unique opportunities for maths educators to explore approaches to maths teaching and learning, as well as maths teachers' professional development, that are key to mathematical success in other parts of the world. 

In the morning, we will experience a live and large scale, Japanese style demonstration lesson study with expert input from maths educators from Tokyo Gakugei University. A year 7 class, from a local school, will participate in a Japanese problem-solving lesson with content appropriate to both primary and secondary phases.

Our Japanese colleagues are led by Professor Keiichi Nishimura who leads Teacher Research Groups at Tokyo Gakugei University. These groups use lesson study to inform reform of the Japanese National Curriculum and Professor Nishimura works closely with the Japanese Education Ministry as well as being invited to act as a final commentator in lesson study throughout Japan. Professor Nishimura is part of the IMPULS team that has been working with researchers in Nottingham to develop lesson study for problem solving both here in the UK and also in Japan.

In the afternoon, there will be opportunities to take part in a choice of two workshop sessions led by teachers and researchers exploring what we might learn from other countries about a number of other important issues including text books, curriculum, and assessment. 

The conference builds on lesson study research that we have carried in Nottingham in the LeMaPS project, as well as research across a range of our other research projects.
