Working Session (WS)

The aim of Working Sessions is that PME participants collaborate in joint activity on a research topic. For this research topic there must be a clear research framework or research strategy and precise goals so that a coherent collaborative activity is ensured. Ideas for a WS can result from DG sessions of previous conferences where a topic was elaborated and a research framework or strategy was developed. Each Working Session should be complementary to the aims of PME and ensure maximum involvement of each participant.

Submission and Reviewing Process

A WS application must include

  • names of a coordinator and an assistant coordinator, both of whom must be active members of PME
  • information about the theoretical background of the topic of the WS as well as descriptions of specific tasks or activities to be carried out in the sessions
