About this book

This book offers a counterpart to the extensive corpus of literature available on the same topic from a Western perspective. It showcases innovative approaches to professional development of mathematics teachers in Asian countries, and reports on both empirical and expository studies of teachers’ professional development in these counties. It provides scholars from non-English-speaking and under-represented Asian countries the opportunity to engage in discourse with other scholars in the field, and is the first book to present substantial contributions from scholars in Asia on the professional development of mathematics teachers in their respective countries. It includes perspectives that shed valuable light on how the approaches pursued in Asian countries resemble or differ from those in the West.

Reviews

“Professional Development of Mathematics Teachers: An Asian Perspective … offers a rich source of information on mathematics teacher development in Asia, including training and support for practicing teachers. … The book is highly academic and therefore full of theories, data, analysis, and insight. It also has lots of informative and descriptive tables and figures. … the book is put together primarily for researchers, policy makers, and mathematics teacher educators as a tool for policy and academic discourse.” (Woong Lim, MAA Reviews, maa.org, May, 2017)
