ABOUT ME

Hui-Chuan Li is currently a Programme Leader for Graduate Professional Development in SHBIE. She is also a Lecturer in Mathematics Education at the faculty where she teaches and supervises on masters and doctoral courses. She received her PhD degree in education from the University of Cambridge in 2015. Her research interests lie in the field of mathematics learning and teaching in both primary and secondary education, with a focus on classroom interaction, learning through talk and teacher professional development during the implementation of problem-based learning (PBL). She also has a long-standing interest in investigating the impact of mathematics curriculum on students’ opportunity to learn mathematics, from an international comparative perspective. She previously worked as a senior high school teacher (Years 10-12) of mathematics in Taiwan for more than ten years; severed as a part-time associate tutor to mentor mathematics undergraduates; and had experience in supervising pre-service mathematics teachers at school in Taiwan.
