Abstract

What do teacher colleagues learn when they read our research? Do they wonder what it might be like to teach values that they are not sure of? Do our research colleagues wonder whether role-play could be a set of new data collection methods we could use? In the first session of this Discussion Group we explored the background to values and valuing research in mathematics education with short presentations leading to discussion among participants. Presentations were headed ‘Enacting values’[review of foundational literature (Clarkson, Bishop, & Seah, 2010)],‘Projects exploring values and valuing’[describing our work and that of participants (Seah, Andersson, Bishop, & Clarkson, 2016)], and finally ‘Methodology challenges’(discussion of affordances and difficulties encountered with present methods). The last part of the session introduced participants to the notion of role-play (Belova, Eilks, & Feierabend, 2013). We self divided into a small group of ‘students’ and a second larger group of ‘research observers’. At the core of the role-play was to experience what it was like to act out a given valuing role (‘students’), or observing players who do so (‘research observers’), and ascertaining whether identifiable behaviours are more likely to be associated with specific values. To this end we discussed with the ‘students’ how they might play out a role that showed they were valuing one of the six values that Bishop (1988) had identified, and with the ‘research observers’ we discussed what behaviour they might expect to be associated with each of these values (Clarkson, 2015).
