CeRME members Professor Bobbie Hunter, Dr Jodie Hunter and Professor Glenda Anthony were selected by the New Zealand Association for Research in Education (NZARE) to present a symposium at the April 2018 American Educational Research Association (AERA) Conference in New York. This is the largest and most prestigious educational research conference in the world, attracting over 15,000 participants each year.
The symposium presented by the CeRME team was based on research within the Developing Mathematical Inquiry Communities (DMIC) project. A series of blog posts has been published in partnership with NZARE to celebrate and disseminate this work. The four-part blog series explores how culturally underpinned, culturally responsive and culturally sustaining professional development can support ambitious mathematics teaching practice that enhances Pāsifika students' experiences and outcomes in mathematics classrooms. The voices of teachers, teacher educators and students are used to demonstrate the transformations achieved within the DMIC project and to highlight the factors contributing to these transformations.
