Bringing about Success in Mathematics for Students in the Margins: What makes for good practice. (All Levels)

Summary

Robyn Jorgensen is a Professor of Education: Equity and Pedagogy at the University of Canberra. Her work in mathematics education has focused on equity and how practices can either contribute to, or change, the learning outcomes for students who have been traditionally marginalized or excluded from participating in mathematics. She has focused her research on low SES communities, rural/regional communities; and Indigenous communities, most particularly communities located in remote areas. She has recently completed a large national study (ARC-funded) of successful numeracy practices in remote Indigenous communities. She is well known for her work in challenging the status quo in education and seeking to disrupt practices that have been taken-for-granted as ‘the’ way to teach mathematics. She has been the lead researcher in more that 13 large Australian Research Council Grants; has served on numerous boards and advisory committees; and been the editor of the Mathematics Education Research Journal and served on numerous editorial boards for international and national journals.
