McDonough, A. & Sexton, M. (2011). Building preservice teacher capacity for effective mathematics teaching through partnerships with teacher educators and primary school communities. J. Clark, B. Kissane, J. Mousley. 508-514. Australia: AAMT and MERGA.
Calls have been made for teacher educators to innovate upon well-established teacher education programs. During 2010, a project was initiated that sought to study the impact that a school-university partnership had on building preservice teacher capacity for effective teaching of mathematics. Early findings suggest that a range of factors including observation of lecturers teaching mathematics lessons, and participation with teacher educators in lesson planning, team-teaching, and post-lesson reflections can be helpful in building capacity for effective mathematics teaching.
