Understanding teachers' work through their interactions with
resources for teaching

The Re(s)sources international conference in May 2018 in Lyon (France)

New deadline for contributing: November 1st 2017

The development of the Internet and, as consequences, the abundance
of digital resources and the emergence of new forms of collective
work, lead to new developments and uncertainties in teaching and
learning. These upheavals have given rise to new theoretical needs:
how to analyze teachers' work when they prepare for their teaching?
How to conceptualise the relationships between individual and
collective work? How to follow the related processes over the long

Ten years ago these theoretical and practical needs led to the
proposal of a new frame, the documentational approach to didactics,
in the field of mathematics education, This approach has developed
in relation to other approaches in the field, in France and
internationally (Gueudet, & Trouche, 2009). It has fostered about
twenty theses, crossed other theoretical frames throughout the
development of research programs at the national level (ANR ReVEA in
France for example) or international (European projects such as MC2,
projects in Argentina, Brazil, China, Lebanon or Senegal). The
initial field, mathematics at secondary school, has been expanded
from Kindergarten to University, and to other fields of application:
languages, biology, chemistry, physics.

Alongside these developments the approach has been enriched by new
concepts (daughters resources - mother resources, meta-resources,
disciplinary affinity, documentational incident, documentation
expertise or documentational trajectory); the methodology of
reflective investigation has developed in several directions, in
particular for the analysis of collective forms of documentation
work. At the same time new questions have emerged, highlighting the
need for new research programs. It is to take stock of these advances
and questions that this three-day conference is organized.

This conference will give matter to a book, that will be published in
the Springer series Advances in Mathematics Education.
