Some Problematics in International Collaboration in Mathematics Education

Atweh, Bill & Clarkson, Philip (2002) Some Problematics in International Collaboration in Mathematics Education. In Barton, B., Irwin, K., & Pfannkuch, M. (Eds.) Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, July 2002, Auckland New Zealand.


This paper discusses data from interviews with mathematics educators from Australasia and Colombia on their views of, experiences in and expectations from the internationalisation and globalisation of their discipline. International collaboration is essential for moving the discipline forward in a globalised world and avoiding the colonialism of the past - and allowing the discipline to play its role in bridging the increasing gap between developing and developed countries. The aim of this analysis is to examine some problematical aspects of this collaboration between countries of unequal "power" and resources.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
