Abstract [en]

At WALS 08 a paper on an alternative design for a learning study was presented (A learning study improving teaching at teacher education in mathematics, van Bommel & Liljekvist) and we would now like to present results of the conducted learning study. The study was carried out with university students and their student teachers at a teacher training course in mathematics and the aim (object of learning) of the learning study was to develop a structure of Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) in mathematics. PCK can be described as subject matter knowledge for teaching and good understanding of PCK implies an awareness of interrelating components of importance for teaching a particular topic in mathematics. The five interrelating components chosen by the university teachers in this study are preconceptions, models for explanation, related (hands on) materials, suitable exercises and curricular knowledge. Pre and post tests consisted of preparing and writing down a lesson plan within a specific mathematical content. Each lesson plan was evaluated on 15 aspects consisting of the five interrelating components mentioned above and the correlations amongst them. Analysis shows in which of the 15 aspects students results progressed during the learning study and in which ones it did not. For instance there was a clear progression in the correlation between the expressed curricular knowledge and the exercises chosen in the lesson plan. The analysis gave us indications of the critical aspects needed for deepening an understanding of the structure of PCK. In our presentation we would like to share some of the results of our analysis and also point out the changes we made regarding the learning study lessons.
