Senior Lecturer (Mathematics Education), Griffith University

I have taught, and led the teaching of, mathematics for 34 years: as a primary school classroom teacher, school and curriculum leader, and university educator. Every aspect of my teaching is informed by an overarching goal to inspire new generations of creative, motivational mathematics teachers. My teaching philosophy is based in a deep appreciation of the critical role of mutual and supportive working relationships between teachers and learners and commitment to the provision of mathematics learning and teaching environments that are personally, socially and educationally rich.

My teaching is complemented by a robust research and scholarship portfolio, which includes national and international journal articles and Grants for learning and teaching. Details of my research are available at https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Kevin_Larkin. I am currently the Vice President (Communications) for the Mathematics Education Research Group Australasia (MERGA).
