Our first MKN Advisory Panel Institute was a success! Our 12 university partners and 7 community partners met at the Fields Institute to discuss their knowledge mobilization/implementation plans.
MKN-AP Institute participants represented AECEO, AFEMO, Brock University, CSC Providence, FNMIEAO, GECDSB, KNAER, Lakehead University, Laurentian University, MOE, Nipissing University, OAME, OISE (University of Toronto), OMCA, OPC, Queen’s University, TDSB, Trent University, TVO, University of Windsor, Western University, Wilfrid Laurier University, and YRDSB.
Over the 2 days, our 4 Communities of Practice formed:
- Mathematics Leadership
- Critical Transition in Mathematics Education
- Indigenous Knowledge and Mathematics Education
- Computational Thinking in Mathematics Education
For a full breakdown of events over the two days, see the agenda.
On February 6, 2017 the MKN was on CBC Radio! Dr. Donna Kotsopoulos, co-director of the MKN and professor at Wilfrid Laurier University, shared how our network aims to improve math education in Ontario.

Established in November 2016, The MKN is a KNAER Phase II project, funded by the Ontario Ministry of Education, and hosted by the Centre for Mathematics Education at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences.
The MKN brings together educators, researchers, and organizations across Ontario to mobilize evidence from research and professional practice in mathematics education, facilitate the use of evidence-based practices for mathematics instruction to support improved educational achievement, and contribute to the Ministry of Education’s mathematics goals and priorities.
