Vince has published extensively in the areas of numeracy, mathematical modelling and applications, and the use of technology in enhancing mathematics teaching, learning and assessment. He is currently an Associate Editor of the Mathematics Education Research Journal.
REASONS I’M A MEMBER OF THE TEAM:
I have been asked to represent Australian interests by Claire Whyte-Smith, Dean of Education at Australian Catholic University. My expertise is in mathematics education, including assessment in this area.
TITLE OF PRESENTATION:
Mathematics Assessment as Performance and Critique in Online Environments
This presentation explores the possibilities that exist for the assessment of mathematics teaching practice in online environments within pre-service education programs. In doing so, theoretical issues underpinning the design and use of online learning environments in mathematics teacher education will be examined. In particular, the presentation will consider the contribution of social theories of learning to conceptualising technology-mediated interaction, focusing specifically on community of practice models and the notion of digital mathematics performance. This approach will be illustrated via an example of a community of practice and performance-based assessment task. The presentation will conclude by identifying implications for the design of online learning environments in mathematics teacher education to capitalise on the affordances of Web-based technologies.
