Presentation of YESS 10

The ERME Board, YERME and the Local Organisers are happy to invite PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, and master students in mathematics education and others entering mathematics education research to take part in the Tenth YERME Summer School (YESS-10). In line with the ERME Manifesto, the aims of the Summer School are:

PERIOD: The school begins on April 21st morning and finishes on April 26th evening, 2020 (five and a half days of work plus one intermediate half-day for excursion).

PLACE: The summer school takes place on the University of the Aegean, in Rhodes and is organized by the Laboratory of Learning Technology and Educational Engineering (LTEE).

ACCOMMODATION AND CONFERENCE FEES: An all-inclusive 7 days full-board accommodation (from April 20th, afternoon, to April 27th, morning) is offered. The conference fee will be 500€. This fee will include accommodation with breakfast, all meals and coffee/tea as well as an excursion. There will be a possibility for some scholarships for participants from European and non-European countries who demonstrate the need for such support (depending on ERME contribution and other contributions). Allocation will be decided according to the needs and the funds available. In principle, it is expected that participants will first seek support from funding organisations in their own country or their countries of study.

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 84

LANGUAGE: English

TOPICS: The proposed topics of the 2020 Summer School are:

  1. Teacher knowledge and practice; teacher education and professional development.
  2. Teaching and learning mathematics at the primary level (including early school).
  3. Teaching and learning mathematics at secondary level, including the transition between elementary and secondary level.
  4. Teaching and learning mathematics at the upper secondary and university levels.
  5. Information technologies in mathematics teaching and learning.
  6. Proof, proving, problem solving and modelling in mathematics education.
  7. Theoretical perspectives, linguistic and representational aspects of teaching and learning mathematics.

The seven working groups will be chaired by leading experts in mathematics education. In addition, the experts will give lectures.
