Rogerson, Alan (ed.), The mathematics education for the future project. Proceedings of the 13th international conference ‘Mathematics education in a connected world’, Catania, Sicily, Italy, September 16‒21, 2015. Münster: WTM-Verlag (ISBN 978-3-942197-44-1/pbk; 978-3-942197-86-1/ebook). Conference Proceedings in Mathematics Education 1, 289-294 (2015).
Summary: This paper draws from research literature and a pilot study on the incorporation of outreach and community engagement in mathematics teacher education. The discussion highlights ways in which such programs effectively supplement requirements for classroom-based field experiences and considers the benefits for both future teachers as well as the learners for which the programs are designed. Development of university-community partnerships are also highlighted as an important outcome. The integration of research perspectives culminates in implications for future research and teacher education program development.
