Out of Field Mathematics Teachers’ Action Research

Out of Field Mathematics Teachers' Action Research

Abstract: An empirical study of the action research projects conducted by out-of-field (OOF) mathematics teachers as participants of the Professional Diploma in Mathematics for Teaching (PDMT). Research to date has focused on the role of self-study action research in the development of OOF mathematics teachers' beliefs and practices as viewed through the lens of zone theory. The study aims to contribute to the current understanding of out-of-field teaching and to make recommendations for their professional development.
