Associate Professor Tomas Hojgaard

Aarhus University

Tomas Hojgaard is Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at Aarhus University, Denmark. His research very often involves an investigation of the opportunities for and challenges in applying descriptions of subject-specific competencies as didactical tools of development, both in general terms, and in relation to mathematical modelling competency. Furthermore, he investigates the conditions for and obstacles against establishing a fertile interplay between didactics of mathematics as a field of research on the one hand, and the practical teaching of mathematics on the other. This is done in various ways, e.g. through participation in a number of R&D-projects as listed on his homepage.
