“Mathematics Teacher Education: Normal Schools to Now. What’s the Fit and Future for AMTE?"
Francis (Skip) Fennell, an Emeritus Professor at McDaniel College, will give the Judith Jacobs Lecture at the 2016 AMTE Conference, entitled "Mathematics Teacher Education: Normal Schools to Now. What's the Fit and Future for AMTE?” Teacher education and specifically mathematics teacher education has come a long way! This session will trace the roots of teacher education, with particular attention to mathematics teacher education, from normal schools to online efforts, including the creation of and the early years of AMTE. Importantly, it will also identify current and potential challenges for the field as well as suggest how mathematics teacher education, and specifically AMTE, can and must be engaged in issues impacting our field. This ranges from previous to ongoing and future initiatives regarding teacher preparation and professional development for mathematics teachers at all levels.
