2018 MI-AMTE Conference
Conversations Among Colleagues
March 17, 2018
Hosted by Eastern Michigan University
The 2018 MI-AMTE Conversations among Colleagues meeting continues a commitment to utilize the full range of experts available in K-16 education within the state of Michigan to share ideas about improving teaching and learning mathematics. The conference includes invited plenary sessions, participant working groups, and solicited talks related to the conference theme.
This year's conference theme is The Teacher Development Continuum: Preservice through Early Career
The AMTE Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics start from the assumption that the development of teachers' content and teaching knowledge, skills, and dispositions occurs over a career-long trajectory, known as the Teacher Development Continuum. In this conference, we will examine and discuss this continuum, with a focus on the time frame from Preservice through Early Career. Presentations and discussion will address this from both research and practice perspectives.
Call for Proposals
Proposals for talks related to the theme are most welcome. Submit your proposal online. Proposals are due by January 10, 2018. Speakers will be notified regarding their acceptance around January 17, 2018.
Stephanie Casey (Co-chair), Carla Tayeh (Co-chair), Kristen Bieda, AJ Edson, Adam Eide, Eric Mann, Laura McLeman, and Valerie Mills.
About Conversations among Colleagues
