Florence Glanfield (University of Alberta)

The purpose of the work being proposed for a one-week research team working session at BIRS is to make significant progress on a book manuscript that explores the ways in which a Global Affairs Canada development project was designed to build capacity for mathematics teaching and learning in rural areas in Tanzania. The book outlines the ways in which the project was designed and implemented, and reframes how sustainability of such international development projects can be re-conceptualized in terms of the ways in which participants continue to live and enhance their mathematical, professional, and personal learnings.
