The Centre for the Advancement of Science and Mathematics Education (CASME) is pleased to announce the launch of a new multi-sectoral mathematics education forum. The CASME Mathematics Education Research, Development and Practice Forum (MERDeP Forum) is an independently hosted forum for bridging the divide in research, development, policy and practice in mathematics education.
Through the forum, CASME plans to host MERDeP discussions on a bi-annual basis. The issues, topics and agenda may be suggested by the community of researchers, teachers, teacher educators, education department members and other practitioners. The forum will also serve as a Professional Networking platform.
