Can Research Care About People? : Research Roles and Methods for Community Building
Friday, January 7, 2022
6:30 – 8:00 PM

Mathematics Education Research often operates by categorizing humans into three specific roles: Researchers, Teachers, and Students. These categories limit the contributions of all humans within the research process, devaluing the theorizing done by teachers, the teaching done by students, and the learning done by the researchers. In this keynote address, Drs. Chao and Adams Corral share experiences from their own work on building spaces for communities to come together around mathematics storytelling and developing research relationships within an elementary school to question the very nature of roles and methods within mathematics education research.
