Dr. Elif Karslı, our faculty member in College of Education, has been awarded a TUBITAK 1003 R&D grant for the “PROJECT MIGRA-MATH: Supporting Teachers of Immigrant Students with respect to their Mathematics Education Professional Practices” applying to the national research call "Improving Education through Quality Teacher Training”.

 The project, proposed by a team of researchers from TED University (Dr. Sinan Olkun, Dr. Tülin Haşlaman, Dr. Mana Ece Tuna ve Sinem Sözen), University of Georgia (Dr. Martha Allexsaht-Snider), Ankara University (Dr. Aliye Erdem, Zeki Özen), Hasan Kalyoncu University (Dr. Şermin Metin, Neşe Uygun), and İstanbul Kemerburgaz University (Anıl Özge Üstünel Balcı) is one of the 2 nation-wide research and development projects selected among 174.

 The overall goal of the proposed project is to support the teaching of mathematics for elementary school teachers (K-4) working with immigrant and refugee students with an emphasis on school-family-community partnership and eventually to develop a pedagogical model for mathematics education with its curriculum materials. This model will be developed in collaboration with 60 teachers from five different cities highly populated by immigrants and refugees (Gaziantep, Hatay, Şanlıurfa, Ankara and İstanbul).
