Learning as a Mathematics Teacher Educator through Narrative Interviewing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)

Abstract

Over many years, I have carried out narrative interviews with practising mathematics teachers for a range of purposes: on their first lessons of the school year; on their role as mentors for mathematics student teachers; and focusing on their learning as teachers of algebra to year 7 students (to mention a few examples). I focus on two strands that illustrate my learning as a mathematics teacher educator; the first on what I have learnt about interviewing, particularly narrative interviewing where stories are co-constructed during the interviews; and the second on my learning about mathematics teacher development that gets applied back into my work on a secondary one-year PGCE course.
