Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership

The Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership (MTE-Partnership) is a partnership of institutions of higher education and K-12 schools, districts, and other organizations working collaboratively to redesign secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs. The partnership will provide a coordinated research and development effort for secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs in order to meet the challenges of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and to embody research and best practices in the field.

The partners will participate in a conference in early Spring 2012 designed to identify guiding principles underlying the effort, as well as priorities for action. Based on these recommendations, an application process will be used to select a subset of around 8 core partners who will organize the research and development process with continued involvement of the full partnership. The National Science Foundation is supporting the initial planning. Substantial long-term funding will be sought to sustain a continuing research and development effort.

Applications will be accepted until January 31, 2012, although screening of completed applications will begin in mid-January. Click here for more information.Link
