The School of Education at the University of Delaware will host a working conference for U.S. faculty on mathematics preparation for K-8 teachers, June 6-8, 2016. All expenses (except two dinners) will be paid by a grant from the National Science Foundation. The goal of the conference is to provide opportunities for participants to develop an action plan for improving the quality of their mathematics content courses for K-8 pre-service teachers.
To read more about the conference and submit an application to attend, please go to http://www.mathteacheredconference.education.udel.edu/. We will select 25 applicants who are committed to improving the quality of their mathematics content courses for K-8 pre-service teachers, and who are positioned to improve these courses over the long run.
