- Dr Clare Susan Lee

Clare Lee is works on the EdD and for the Masters in Education team at the Open University. She is passionately interested in improving teaching as a whole and the of mathematics in particular. She works with pre-service and in-service teachers to research how this can be done, publishing books and journal articles on a regular basis. Her current research interests are working to Develop Mathematical Resilience in all learners of mathematics from young people in school to adult learners. She works with National Advisory panels on mathemtical education

Previously Clare has taken varied roles, working as a mathematics teacher for about 20 years and working as assessment consultant for a local authority. She held the exciting role of Research Fellow on the Nuffield funded KMOFAP project resulting in the innovative, game-changing and widely used Assessment for Learning Materials. She is co-author of both *Working Inside the Black Box* and *Assessment for Learning - Putting it into Practice*.

Clare currently supervises PhD students and EdD students and enjoys working with them to develop their ideas and explore the nature of learning mathematics and how to improve it and how assessment really can improve learning in schools.

My research Interests centre on improving teaching both in mathemtics and across the curriculum. I am currently working on Mathematical Resilience which builds on my previous work on both Asessment for Learning across all curriculum subjects and The Role of Language in the Learning of mathematics.

Mathematical Resilience - If mathematics is difficult to master, and many people say that it is, then learners will need to develop a positive adaptive stance to mathematics such that it will allow them to continue learning despite barriers and difficulties. This positive adaptive stance to mathematics can be termed “Mathematical Resilience”. A mathematical learning environment can be a positive place for the pupils where barriers to learning mathematics can be overcome. Pupils who have a high level of mathematical resilience know that it is worth persevering when faced with difficulties and know many ways of doing this, work collaboratively with their peers, have the language skills needed to express their understandings and have a growth theory of mathematical learning .

I also work internationally on projects. I have worked extensively on the TESS-India materials, working with Indian colleagues to create web based distance learning materials designed to support teachers in changing the way that they facilitate learning in their classrooms. I have also worked in India to support teachers in beginning to use the materials in their classroom and with teacher educators and other education officials to create a community of practice that will be sustainable.

I currently teach on the EdD and Masters programmes on Education and on Assessment.

Mathematics Resilience is beginning to make an impact both nationally and internationally. In January 2015 the Shard Symposium was held in London, which was followed by the First and Second Internal Conference on Mathematical Resilience in March 2016 and March 2017. At these conferences papers were presented showing how and why mathematics resilience is important across all strata of society. Three main strands emerged, developing Mathematics Resilience in schools and with parents and coaching for mathematical resilience in work-based learners.
