This second edition of the
International Handbook of Mathematics Teacher Education builds on and extends the topics/ideas in the first edition while maintaining the themes for each of the volumes. Collectively, the authors look back beyond and within the last 10 years to establish the state-of-the-art and continuing and new trends in mathematics teacher and mathematics teacher educator education, and look forward regarding possible avenues for teachers, teacher educators, researchers, and policy makers to consider to enhance and/or further investigate mathematics teacher and teacher educator learning and practice, in particular. The volume editors provide introductions to each volume that highlight the subthemes used to group related chapters, which offer meaningful lenses to see important connections within and across chapters. Readers can also use these subthemes to make connections across the four volumes, which, although presented separately, include topics that have relevance across them since they are all situated in the common focus regarding mathematics teachers.
Tools and Processes in Mathematics Teacher Education, describes and analyze various promising tools and processes, from different perspectives, aimed at facilitating the mathematics teacher learning and development. It provides insights of how mathematics teacher educators think about and approach their work with teachers. Thus, as the second volume in the series, it broadens our understanding of the mathematics teacher and their learning and teaching.
