Atweh, Bill & Clarkson, Philip (2005) Conceptions tensions in globalization and its effects by mathematics educators.

The effects of the increasing international academic contacts and the globalisations of research and curriculum in mathematics education are wide spread and their impacts are experienced differently in many countries around the world. This paper reports on data from three focus groups conducted with mathematics educators from universities in Australia and New Zealand, The Philippines and Colombia. It discusses some tensions raised by these academics in coming to grips with the globalisation of their discipline.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
