Enhancement of research excellence in Mathematics Teacher Knowledge

Project description

Improving maths teacher training

Mathematics has provided the foundations on which all science branches were built and developed. As such, mathematics is and will continue to be an important field of scientific research and education. This creates a need for more efficient and better trained mathematics teachers, a need which has not thus far been met. The EU-funded MaTeK project aims to change this. It will focus on developing and improving the Department of Mathematics Education of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Comenius University in Bratislava. The actions the project will take towards this goal will provide the department with the opportunity to improve their practice by cooperating with other successful mathematics departments in various other universities.


"The aim of this twinning project Horizon 2020 ""Enhancement of research excellence in Mathematics Teacher Knowledge"" (MaTeK) is to develop the excellence of the Department of Mathematics Education (DME) at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Comenius University in Bratislava (UK BA), by becoming a national and internationally recognized institution in the field of mathematics education research.
The goal of MaTeK is to provide the DME opportunity to learn from partners, to exchange best practices, and establish extensive networks for excellence. MaTeK will twin DME with Departments of Mathematics and Mathematics Education of the following universities: Charles University in Prague (CU), Czech Republic, University of Palermo (UNIPA), Italy, Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim (NTNU), Norway and Middle East Technical University (METU), Turkey. Thus, MaTeK’s activities will enable to strengthen research profile and scientific excellence of three institutions from Widening countries. That might be an exceptional case, among other projects.
We will implement MaTeK through four work packages (WP) with clear and measurable deliverables. The DME will adopt a new practice of knowledge transfer, international academic partnership, and development of excellent science. Within H2020, we will exploit the connection for submitting joint research project proposals. The DME will transfer its knowledge and scientific excellence to other HEIs in Slovakia."
