Announcements/Calls for papers

  1. Editors Barbara Polnick (Sam Houston State University) and Beverly Irby (Texas A&M) announce a second call for papers for the book Girls and Women of Color in STEM: Navigating the Double Bind. This is a volume in the series Research on Women in Education.

  2. Call for chapter proposals for The Education Doctorate (Ed.D.): Issues of Access,  Diversity, Social Justice, and Community Leadership, Virginia Stead, Ed.D, series editor. Proposals due by August 30, 2014.

  3. Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) would like to announce a new round of funding from the National Science Foundation to help researchers who have ideas to improve K-12 education. WPI has been running the ASSISTments platform for eight years, which currently has 50,000 students using it as part of their classwork as well as for homework. UIC’s Jim Pellegrino is in charge of the advisory board helping guide the selection of studies.

    Researchers from ten universities, including Harvard, Berkeley, Vanderbilt, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, University of Notre Dame, and University of Illinois-Chicago, have partnered with WPI to conduct studies using ASSISTments. Now it is time to get you involved!

    If you are interested in learning more, there is a webinar on Monday July 28th at 12:00 noon eastern time zone:  https://sites.google.com/site/neilheffernanscv/webinar. Our goal is to help researchers from across the country conduct studies suitable for publication in peer-reviewed journals. Over 50 researchers have already registered. At the webinar, researchers from UIC, Stanford and WPI will explain how they have done studies in the platform.

    ASSISTments is, and will always be, a free public service of WPI.  Please sign-up to learn more how you, your post docs and graduate students can take advantage of this valuable service. If you cannot attend the Monday webinar but wish to view it - sign up and we will send it to you.

  4. The editing team of Action in Teacher Education, a national peer reviewed journal that publishes scholarship relating to research in teacher education (pre- and in-service) and pedagogy, seeks reviewers for manuscripts submitted to the journal.  They are looking for teaching and research faculty from across research methodologies and areas of expertise with the time, and willingness to conduct rigorous analyses of submissions and provide constructive feedback that informs editors and authors about manuscripts’ strengths and weaknesses.

    Those interested should send an email providing their (1) name, (2) title, (3) affiliation, (4) research foci, and (5) methodological expertise to ActionTE@ilstu.edu.

  5. Jinfa Cai has shared the recently released IES & NSF Report on Common Guidelines for Education Research and Development. Thanks, Jinfa!
  6. Travel Grants are available from the Association for Women in Mathematics. Deadlines: Feb 1, May 1, Oct 1, every year.

The purpose of SIG/RME is to promote and to disseminate research, development, and evaluative efforts in mathematics education, and to promote and encourage scholarly and productive exchanges among members of all the constituencies that affect, or are affected by, research on the learning and teaching of mathematics.
