International Panel: Bridging Policy and Practice
A Focus on Teacher Preparation


The International Panel could not have been the success that it was without the extraordinary efforts of a number of individuals.

We would like to acknowledge the staff from the Division of Science and Mathematics Education at Michigan State University and Park City Mathematics Institute for their efforts in putting the panel and this manuscript together. In particular, Jean Beland and Nancy DeMello were instrumental in overseeing the arrangements for the meeting and for providing onsite support during the meeting. We thank Catherine Giesbrecht who served as our liaison to the Institute for Advanced Study, managed the contacts with the international participants, and facilitated our interaction with the Park City Mathematics Institute. We are also grateful to Carol Hattan for arranging to have members of the High School Teachers' Program serve as hosts for the participants. And, we thank Herb Clemens, director of the Park City Mathematics Institute, for his vision, persistence, and support. We also thank Elaine Wolfensohn for her encouragement and advice.

We are grateful to our funders, the Wolfensohn Family Foundation, the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation, and International Commission on Mathematics Instruction, for continuing to support the idea that international dialogue among teachers and researchers can be an important step in beginning to think globally about mathematics education.
