Teacher Quality, Quality Teaching, and Student Outcomes: Measuring the Relationships
Heather Hill, Harvard University

Many assume that better-quality teachers will lead to improvements in the quality of teaching and,
thus, student outcomes. Over the past decade, a program has been developed of research around
measuring key components of mathematical teacher quality and the mathematical quality of
teaching. This session describes the efforts to develop these measures.

Designing Powerful Digital Environments for Professional Development (Fosnot)

Designing Powerful Digital Environments for Professional Development
Cathy Fosnot, Mathematics in the City

Professional development environments that include digital video allow for the examination of children at work, opportunities to look at students over time, and analysis of the teacher’s decision making. This observation begs the question of how best to shape mathematics education courses that build on the use of digital environments. This session examines some possibilities for developing both content and pedagogical knowledge.
