The Designing and Implementing Professional Development working group consists of Professional Development and Outreach (PDO) leaders, PD3 (the PCMI Mathematics Science Partnership) leadership team members, mathematics curriculum specialists and supervisors. Supervisor is a general term for a K-12 mathematics coordinator, consultant, or specialist.
The focus of the group is to provide professional development opportunities for those who provide professional development to secondary teachers. The discussion and interaction is intended to support participants in their own work in a variety of professional development settings. The group brings together mathematicians, mathematics education faculty, supervisors, and secondary teachers to collectively consider issues in working with teachers of secondary school mathematics and to search for common solutions.
The organizers for 2006 are Al Cuoco, Wayne Harvey, and Sarah Sword from Education Development Center, and the central theme is the nature and role of important mathematical ideas in designing and delivering professional development.
