invites you to the colloquium:

A Study of Mathematics TeacherÕs Constraints in Changing Practices in South Africa: Some Lessons from Countries Participating in the LearnerÕs Perspective Study

 

Speaker:

Dr. Herbert Khuzwayo

University of Zululand, South Africa

 

My presentation would report on my current involvement in studying constraints and struggles experienced by mathematics teachers as they attempt to take on new curricular and pedagogies in South Africa. Some of the obstacles, tensions and contradictions that arise as teachers make attempts to transform fundamentally their mathematics teaching from an apartheid to post apartheid curriculum are not unique to South Africa alone. This has become evident from an attempt to analyze teacher data collected as part of an international research project,The LearnerÕs Perspective Study.
