A Centre for Research in Mathematics Education event for the School of Education

This webinar (to be held via Zoom) addresses the potential future of teachers developing sustainable models at scale of professional learning in relation to their classroom practice. In presenting results of the Lessons for Mathematical Problem Solving (LeMaPS) project the researchers will expand the agenda to consider conditions necessary to support models of lesson study at a time of much change and instability in schools.

The Nuffield funded project “Developing a sustainable and scalable model for the professional learning of mathematics teachers” worked with and examined clusters of schools and wider networks using lesson study to improve the teaching of mathematical problem solving. The research, led by Professors Geoff Wake and Malcolm Swan and Dr Colin Foster, at the University of Nottingham, was carried out at a time of considerable system turbulence and change. The webinar will provide an overview of findings with recommendations for policy and practice at both a system and school level. These will be considered by the team, participants in the research and participants in the webinar.

The speakers for the event are:


  • Geoff Wake, Professor of Mathematics Education, University of Nottingham
  • Colin Foster, Reader in Mathematics Education, Loughborough University

Other contributors

  • Pete Dudley, President, World Association of Lesson Studies and University of Cambridge
  • Keiichi Nishimura, Professor of Mathematics education, Tokyo Gakugei University
  • Charlie Stripp, National Director of the National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics
  • Akihiko Takahashi, Associate Professor, DePaul University, Chicago
