Conversations among Colleagues (CAC) was designed in 2003-2004 to facilitate conversations between and among mathematicians, mathematics teacher educators, and leaders in mathematics education during a day of sessions and conversations related to mathematics education and the preparation and continuing professional development of teachers of mathematics PreK-College.
At the 2014 AMTE conference, a group of Michigan members came together to consider the idea of a Michigan affiliate. A group of these members worked throughout 2014 to co-found MI-AMTE, which became an official AMTE affiliate at the 2015 annual conference.
At the 2015 CAC conference, it was decided to combine CAC and the new MI-AMTE's annual meeting into one annual conference. The first MI-AMTE/CAC conference will be held in March 2016. The goal of this conference continues to be bringing together mathematics teacher educators, mathematicians, and other leaders in mathematics education to engage in conversations about teacher preparation in Michigan. We are excited for the start of this new era!
If you are interested in hosting future MI-AMTE/ CAC conferences, please contact any member of the board with a proposal.
