Dr. Holt Wilson (Teacher Education and Higher Education) received new funding from the National Science Foundation for the project “Collaborative Research: Co-Designing for Statewide Alignment of a Vision for High Quality Mathematics Instruction [VISIONS].”

The intent of this Level II Late Stage Design and Development project addresses the DRK-12 Teaching strand by investigating the instructional visions held by educators across various levels of a state educational system, the ways in which these educators’ visions mediate systemic coherence when implementing STEM innovations at scale, and how resources collaboratively designed to promote a shared vision of high quality mathematics instruction support the development of a shared vision of high quality mathematics instruction across the system. Ultimately, the researchers aim to develop an empirically supported framework for implementing large scale STEM education innovations. To do so, researchers plan concurrent iterations of the design cycle and research to support their understanding of the nature and perceived coherence visions of HQMI held by multiple stakeholders in the state educational system, how those visions are mediated by co-designed resources, and how they mediate implementation of resources in local contexts.
