- Seven 45-minutes Lectures given by the invited experts (with 30-minutes additional discussions with the lecturer, prepared by small group discussions); before the Summer School, each expert will circulate (by internet) a summary of his/her talk, pointing out relevant issues to be discussed. In addition, a daily meeting with the plenary speakers will be included in the programme.
- Nine two-hour sessions in seven parallel Thematic Working Groups. The Thematic Working Groups will meet every day (at least once). They will start from the participants’ papers and will address (amongst others) the following “leading questions”: How to choose research problems and research questions? How to refer to and use existing literature and frame own research? How to position theory in own research? How to construct an appropriate research methodology? How to identify, present and interpret research results? How to disseminate research findings so that they have real impact in schools and society? Specific attention will be paid to each participant’s special needs.
- One 90-minutes Discussion Group Session. It will be devoted to topics of common interest – possibly including the above “leading questions”.
- One 90-minutes Informal Discussion Group Session. It will be devoted to issues that are relevant to individual YERME participants’ needs, self-organized by YERME.
The topics for the 2022 Summer School Thematic Working Groups (TWGs) are:
- TWG 1: Mathematics teacher knowledge, practice, and professional development
- TWG 2: Teaching and learning mathematics at the primary and pre-school level
- TWG 3: Teaching and learning mathematics at the secondary level, including the transition between elementary and secondary level
- TWG 4: Teaching and learning mathematics at the upper secondary and university levels
- TWG 5: Information technologies in mathematics teaching and learning
- TWG 6: Proof, proving, problem solving, and modelling in mathematics education
- TWG 7: Preservice teachers’ training in mathematics
