Course Redesign to Improve Pre-service Teacher Engagement and Confidence to Teach Mathematics: A Case Study in Three Parts
AbstractThis article examines pedagogical changes to a mathematics education course for preservice teachers (PSTs) over a three-year period. Transactional Distance Theory (TDT) is used as a conceptual framework underpinning the course redesign. A case study of one campus (Campus A) is presented. It is chosen for analysis because, of the three campuses on which this course is taught, it is this Campus that starkly illuminates the unfolding, three-year drama of course redesign.
