The focus of the Mathematics Education course is bringing participants up to date in curriculum development and research in the field of mathematics education, and refreshing and deepening the knowledge of meaningful and relevant mathematics education. Topics will include curriculum development, revealing and building on talents of students, task design, classroom experiments, contexts and tools for modelling and inquiry-based learning, assessment, and the use of technology for teaching and learning mathematics.

The Summer School on Mathematics Education offers a blend of lectures, seminars and workshops on educational research and development in the fields of primary, secondary and higher mathematics education. The program will be tailored towards the diverse interests of master’s students, PhD students, teachers, teacher educators, curriculum and assessment developers and researchers. 

The Summer School is organized by the Freudenthal Institute of the Faculty of Science of Utrecht University in collaboration with the ICSE Academy (International Centre for STEM Education).
