Mathematics & Science Education Research Seminar

Lesson Study (Fernández & Yoshida, 2005) and the Didactical Suitability Criteria (Font, Breda, & Pino-Fan, 2017) are two major didactical methodologies that teachers have available to analyze their practices. In this presentation Dr. Javier Díez-Palomar, University of Barcelona, will discuss how to combine both approaches to empower in-service and pre-service mathematics teachers’ professional knowledge in supporting them to further develop their ability to do mathematical didactical analysis. Evidence suggests that both approaches gain in a mutual complementarity improving teachers’ ability to face complexity in teachers’ education.
