Example text

In the context of mathematics teaching and learning, academic leaders should have the institutional perspective and resources to bring mathematics faculty and mathematics education faculty together to have productive conversations and to collaborate on strong projects. They can use the call for assessment as an opportunity to strengthen these collaborations. Deans should encourage departments to explicitly discuss how the tripartite work of the faculty should be recognized and rewarded. The dean’s perspective, advocacy, and, in some cases, resources should serve as driving forces for recognizing work in mathematics education as situated firmly in the mission of a department of mathematics and as a vital aspect of a mathematics department’s teaching mission.

9, p. 129). These authors are clear that academic leaders can and should play a significant role in encouraging (or pushing) departments to have these discussions, outline their standards and expectations, and identify how and when to reward the diversity of faculty work. We also agree with McCallum’s suggestion (2003) that departments looking for examples should consider the guidelines developed by the University of Arizona College of Science for promoting mathematics faculty whose work is in mathematics education (1992).
