Abstract

The National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics (NCETM) takes a philosophical approach that values the co-construction of understanding of continuous professional development (CPD) by researchers, teachers and other stakeholders as crucially important. This philosophy also underpins the Researching Effective CPD in Mathematics Education (RECME) project. The paper explores how this philosophy has influenced and informed the design of the research and how plans to encourage co-construction of understanding involving all stakeholders (researchers, the Research Advisory Group, teachers, providers etc) at all stages of the project have evolved.
