Writing for mathematics education at doctoral level

Peter Samuels, Mary Deane

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Although there is a growing body of disciplinary writing development (Gottschalk and Hjortshoj, 2004, Somerville and Crème, 2005), most studies focus on ways of integrating writing development into undergraduate courses. This chapter addresses the relative lack of research into ways of supporting doctoral candidates in disciplinary contexts. It reports on an initiative designed to foster a culture of writing for publication to assist doctoral researchers in Mathematics Education to submit their first journal articles (Samuels and Deane, 2008). Book details: 'Writing in the Disciplines' (WiD) is a growing field in which discipline-based academics, writing developers, and learning technologists collaborate to help students succeed as subject specialists. This book places WiD in its theoretical and cultural contexts and reports on initiatives taking place at a range of UK higher education institutions. Also includes surveys of current developments and scholarship in the US, Australia, Europe and elsewhere, making it of interest to both a UK and an international audience.
