Candace Joswick accepted into noted mathematics education program
Dr. Candace Joswick, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education at UTA’s College of Education, has been accepted into the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) Service, Teaching and Research (STaR) Program, an induction program for early career mathematics educators working at institutions of higher education. The STaR Summer Institute will be held in Park City, Utah in June.
The program includes a summer institute, networking through the academic year and a follow-up session in conjunction with the AMTE annual meeting in February 2021. The program has been completed by 345 early career mathematics educators from over a hundred institutions of higher learning.
“I’m very much looking forward to sharing all of the exciting things happening in mathematics education here at UTA with new colleagues in this induction program,” said Dr. Joswick. “The network that I gain through selection to AMTE STaR is invaluable to my development as an early career mathematics educator and further supports much of the work I am excitedly starting in the College of Education.”
“I am delighted to learn of Dr. Joswick's acceptance as a STaR fellow,” said Dr. Teresa Taber Doughty, dean of the College of Education. “This is a very competitive program that will lead to research and networking opportunities in the mathematics education field. Her acceptance as a fellow is reflective of the high quality work she has done to date and her future trajectory in this academic area.”
The STaR Program originated with a grant from the National Science Foundation. It is hosted by AMTE as one of its mentoring programs for its members.
