Raewyn Eden BCA, DipTchg, MEd

Lecturer in Mathematics Education

Institute of Education

I am involved in several research projects that address national and international education priorities with a particular focus on mathematics education in primary contexts. Prevalent themes in my work include teachers’ professional learning through collaboration and co-teaching in particular; issues of equity of educational opportunity; place and identity within and beyond school; and the role of emotions in teaching and learning. I am currently working on completing my PhD which investigates how collaborative inquiry supports teachers to promote valued educational outcomes for students at risk of underachievement in mathematics.

At present I teach mathematics education in the Graduate Diploma of Teaching and Master of Teaching and Learning primary programmes. I have considerable recent classroom teaching experience, predominantly in primary school contexts but also across early childhood education, secondary, and tertiary contexts including in New Zealand and the Cook Islands.

I have a been lecturer in mathematics education (primary) in the Institute of Education since January 2016. Much of my professional life prior to this has involved teaching in diverse schools, particularly at the primary level, in New Zealand and the Cook Islands.

I am interested in the work of teachers and how we can be supported to engage in ambitious teaching that promotes rich learnng for diverse (all) students. My recent work particularly centres on how teachers' shared work can promote teacher learning, particularly in the context of mathematics teaching and learning.
