GRIP researcher Gil Schwarts has published a new article in For the Learning of Mathematics
Gil Schwarts, a postdoctoral research fellow in the GRIP lab, has published an article about discussion facilitators in the journal For the Learning of Mathematics, with Alf Coles from Bristol University in the UK, and Abraham Arcavi from the Weizmann Institute in Israel.
The article addresses some of the challenges and opportunities that facilitation of discussions between mathematics teachers poses, by analyzing catalytic facilitation episodes. The articles offers a new construct, discussion sense, to capture the complex decision-making done by facilitators.
