Mathematics Educators' Views about Globalization and Internationalization of Their Discipline: Preliminary Findings
Atweh, Bill & Clarkson, Philip (2001) Mathematics Educators' Views about Globalization and Internationalization of Their Discipline: Preliminary Findings. In Valero, P. & Skovsmose, O (Eds.) Mathematics Education and Society, April 2001, Helsingor: Denmark.
This paper summarizes initial data from a study that investigates issues in internationalization and globalization of mathematics education in two regions: Australasia and Latin America. The first stage of study employed the methodology of focus groups with mathematics educators from Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Colombia. The paper presents an initial theoretical model to investigate internationalization and globalization in the field, presents the methodology employed and discusses the alternative conceptualizations exhibited by the participants, some of the reasons they identified for them and some of the problems they identified.
