Jop Schaap (1977) has been a PhD candidate at Research group on Mathematical and analytical competences of professionals since September 2019. His research focuses on the didactics for mathematics teachers in training. He is studying the occurrence of ‘noticing’, recognising situations in the classroom that require mathematical-didactic intervention.
Jop worked as a mathematics teacher in secondary education for twelve years. He has been working as a teacher-trainer at the Archimedes Institute since 2016. Within his research, Jop presents teachers in training possible teaching methods, by way of photo and video material, interviews and discussions. This gives methodology teaching a practical face.
