NEWS - Dr. Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai (University of Reading) invited by Norway’s largest public research university to give his Maths Through Stories lectures and research seminars to staff, pre-service teachers and in-service teachers
Dr. Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai (Associate Professor of Mathematics Education, University of Reading) had recently been invited by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) - Norway’s largest public research university – to give his Maths Through Stories lectures and research seminars to staff, pre-service teachers and in-service teachers.
This invitation followed a UK visit made by Jørn Ove Asklund and his colleagues from NTNU’s Department of Teacher Education last September to meet with Dr. Trakulphadetkrai to learn about his Maths Through Stories research.
Not only did Dr. Trakulphadetkrai have an opportunity to share his research with research staff and teacher educators at the Department, he also got an opportunity to show the pedagogical benefits of supporting mathematics teaching and learning through storytelling to pre-service teachers (who are studying at NTNU) and in-service teachers (who travelled across Norway to receive this training).
During his time there, Dr. Trakulphadetkrai also had a chance to discuss potential research collaboration opportunities with NTNU colleagues and to learn more about teacher training in the context of Norway.
The visits were facilitated by Professor Jeremy Hodgen (UCL Institute of Education), a former Chair of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM).
