Attending to Access, Equity, and Empowerment Matters for Each and Every Student: Beyond Courses and Workshops
In this session, access, equity, and empowerment matters related to mathematics education will be discussed. The discussion will include challenges faced by mathematics teacher educators in helping prospective and in-service teachers to attend to these issues beyond conversations and activities in courses and workshops.
