Call for Papers: Collaboration in Mathematics Teacher Education


Sisyphus – Journal of Education invites papers for its thematic issue about “Collaboration in Mathematics
Teacher Education”, to be published in June 2021. 

Considering that collaboration has stood out for its potential in mathematics teacher education, for promoting interaction processes between in-service teachers, pre-service teachers, and educators, and therefore a learning environment for all people involved in these interaction processes, this thematic issue will host manuscripts that contribute to a qualified debate regarding the potentialities and difficulties connected with the promotion of collaborative environments.
In this special issue, manuscripts will be accepted that discuss the role of collaboration in practices that come out and are problematized within collaborative groups, communities of practice, study groups, teaching supervised practice, among other formal and non-formal contexts of mathematics teacher education. These practices can highlight the potential of collaboration for the constitution and reframing of the teaching practice, for the development of teachers’ professional knowledge, for the problematization of processes of inclusion and of welcoming diversity, among other aspects, with a view to professional development and the constitution of teachers’ professional identity. Research that analyzes collaboration in the context of programs and public policies that consider pedagogical practice and the initial and continuing training of teachers who teach mathematics are also welcome.
The manuscripts must reflect significant advances in scientific knowledge and can report the results of empirical or theoretical investigations. The articles can be written in Portuguese, English, or Spanish.

Submission deadline:
Manuscripts submission (from 6000 to 10.000 words) are due October 31, 2020
