Alison Clark-Wilson,
United Kingdom

Alison Clark-Wilson is a Research Fellow at the London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education, London, where she works on the ambitious Cornerstone Maths project, a UK/US collaboration between LKL and Stanford Research International. (www.cornerstonemaths.co.uk).
Prior to taking up her role at the LKL, she was based at the University of Chichester where she designed and led postgraduate courses and projects for practising secondary mathematics teachers, often with an emphasis on the development of innovative pedagogies involving the use of mathematical technologies. She directed the UK evaluation of Texas Instruments’ TI-Nspire and the European evaluation of their TI-Nspire TI-Navigator network classroom system. From 2009-2012 Alison had the role of the project lead partner in the EU Comenius funded project EdUmatics, which involved 20 Partners from seven EU countries (www.edumatics.eu).
Alison has edited and authored 3 books, the most recent of which is The Mathematics Teacher in the Digital Age (with Ornella Robutti and Nathalie Sinclair, published 2014).
Alison is an active member of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics, The Mathematical Association and a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. She is on the Executive Committee of the British Society for the Learning of Mathematics.
