Abstract

This session reports on one of the findings of the Researching Effective CPD in Mathematics Education
(RECME) Project, funded by the NCETM. We found how being involved in CPD could evoke a passion experience resulting in teachers feeling energised to keep going and working on developing professionally and to overcome obstacles. The research questions we probed were: what is passion and passion-energy, how is it related to CPD in mathematics education and how can it get triggered/be planned for. Theoretical perspectives that informed and supported our analysis framework came from Perry (1968/1999), Csikszentmihalyi (1997) and Bollas (1997). In this seminar we will share our findings and discuss possible implications.
