Particularly, the projects are concerned with identifying the factors that make lesson study / critical inquiry successful. Accordingly, the candidate should be willing to become expert in the area of inquiry based mathematics teacher education (such as Lesson study, professional learning communities) and will conduct research in this field. 

A particular additional focus will be how mathematics teachers can be facilitated to attend to multiple languages in the mathematics classroom. The projects use qualitative research methods and investigate teachers' learning processes over time. The candidate is encouraged to develop his/her/their research within these projects.

Erasmus+ projects entail the collaboration with multiple partners across Europe (in this case Cyprus, Greece, Belgium, but also Norway and Germany), which also requires frequent travelling.
