Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast, with me Craig Barton.
This is an episode from season 2 of the Research in Action mini series, where I interview a researcher from the Mathematics Education Centre at Loughborough University about their chosen area of interest, and the implications for maths teaching and learning. You can check out all the previous conversations in the series here.
On today’s episode I was lucky enough to speak to Paola Iannone.
Paola completed a first degree in mathematics at the Universita’ degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza (Rome – Italy) and PhD in Pure Mathematics the University of East Anglia (UEA). She was then appointed for three years as a Teaching Fellow in the Mathematics department at UEA, and later became a Senior Research Assistant in the School of Education still at UEA until she was appointed to a Lectureship in Educational Research in 2007 and then to a Senior Lectureship in 2012. She took up her current post as a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education at Loughborough University in 2016.
Paola is an expert on summative assessment of mathematics at university level, mathematical reasoning, students’ proof production, university students’ note taking, and lots of other things that I found absolutely fascinating.
