DOCTORAL THESIS ON LESSON STUDY IN MATHEMATICS TEACHER EDUCATION

A recent doctoral thesis by Levi ELIPANE
explains, through an in-depth case study of a
novice teacher, how lesson study is used as a
format for teacher practice in Japanese
pre-service teacher education. This work is based
on empirical studies in Japan, under the
direction of Prof. Toshiakira Fujii of Tokyo
Gakugei University, and is of interest to all
mathematics teacher educators who seek
inspiration for strengthening the links between
practical and theoretical elements of the
preparation of new mathematics teachers. The
thesis was recently submitted and defended at the
University of Copenhagen and it can be ordered
