Math Ed Colloquium

The Lappan-Phillips-Fitzgerald Mathematics Education Colloquium Series

During the academic year the Program in Mathematics Education sponsors a Mathematics Education Colloquium Series. This series consists of talks about research in mathematics education by both faculty members from MSU and scholars from other institutions in the United States and abroad. Past speakers from outside MSU have included Jill Adler, Michele Artigue, Deborah Ball and Hyman Bass, Curt Bennett, Francis (Skip) Fennell, Patricio Herbst, Liping Ma, Robert Reys, Tom Romberg, Deborah Schifter, and Triadafillos Triadafillidis.

Colloquium talks are open to faculty and students interested in mathematics education. New and prospective graduate students are encouraged to attend. Others from outside the MSU community with an interest in research in mathematics education are also welcome. The schedule, flyer and videos (as they become available) for the current semester are listed here, along with a link to the schedule and videos of previous semesters.

Fall 2019/Spring 2020 Mathematics Education Colloquium Schedule

These events are sponsored by the Program in Mathematics Education, the Lappan-Phillips-Fitzgerald Endowment, and the Colleges of Education and Natural Science. For more information, contact a committee member: Higinio Dominguez, Gail Burrill, Sunghwan Byun, Sarah Gady Castle, or contact Freda Cruél, 517-432-1490.

Titles of talks will be posted as they are received. A video of the talk will be posted shortly afterward, as available. Colloquium talks are scheduled in 252 Erickson Hall, unless indicated otherwise.

From the committee:  This year our colloquium focuses on Collaborative Research in Mathematics Education. We believe that collaboration in research contributes to framing and addressing more complex research questions, developing innovative theories and methodologies, and advancing new knowledge in our field. Also, while the expectation in graduate programs is for graduate students to produce research individually, our graduates will enter a field where collaboration is valued for the qualities and benefits previously highlighted.
