Jennie Luebeck
Assistant Professor, University of North Colorado
& Mathematics Education Candidate

Defying Distance: 
Research and Action in Rural Mathematics Education

Dr. Luebeck will describe ongoing qualitative and descriptive research efforts to identify the content and pedagogical needs of isolated rural K-12 mathematics teachers and to measure the effectiveness of intervention models that offer mentoring and reform-based renewal to this population. Issues of methodology and design will be discussed, along with new lines of inquiry linking the current research to cognition and communication issues.  Finally, Dr. Luebeck will summarize her current work with doctoral students on research in undergraduate mathematics education.
