AMTE’s Professional Development for Members (AMTE-PDM) Committee supports the membership by organizing information and opportunities for members to enhance their knowledge about, and practice of, mathematics teacher education.
The Professional Development for Members Committee is charged to promote the mission and goals of AMTE by:
Actively seeking information about resources, such as workshops or institutes, that benefit members and communicating the existence of these resources through AMTE communications, such as the Connections Newsletter, MTE Journal, Facebook page, and website.
Providing guidance and support for those members who feel that they would benefit from learning more about being a mathematics teacher educator. Such support may be in the form of a list of books/articles to read about effective mathematics teacher education practices.
Organizing an on-line discussion forum each month dedicated to reading and responding to a research article about mathematics teacher education with a focus towards implications for MTE practice (collaborative effort with the research committee?).
Working with the membership committee to identify the professional development needs of members and providing webinars and/or podcasts that address the identified needs.
Preparing an annual report for the Board of Directors.
