“Cooperation Mathematics Education in the Digital Age” is one of the 12 sub-projects of the ZeLB project “UP Network for Sustainable Teacher Education”, which is part of the DAAD-funded program “Lehramt.International” (2021-24).
The aim of the project is the internationalization of the Mathematics Teacher Education program by:
- Organizing an international Summer School for students of Mathematics Education in collaboration with Griffith University (Australia) in 2022 in Potsdam.
- Intensifying this cooperation through a teaching and research stay at Griffith University in the spring of 2023.
- Initiating a cooperation with Reykjavik University in Iceland, planned for 2024.
For the Summer School 2022 "Mathematics Education in the Digital Age" at the University of Potsdam, the Mathematics Didactics group in cooperation with Assoc. Prof. Kevin Larkin (Griffith University, Australia) designed an offer for students of mathematics for primary and secondary level. During the Summer School, digital tools were collectively examined and prepared for use in mathematics instruction. Please click here for more information (in German) and see images below.
In March 2023, two members of the Mathematics Education Chair traveled to Australia to further intensify the cooperation with Griffith University following the successful joint implementation of the Summer School. The purpose of the exchange was to gain insights into university structures and the Australian school system, strengthen the university partnership, and initiate joint (research) projects.
