Abstract

It is almost 30 years since Morris Kline published his wide-ranging critique of undergraduate education in his book, "Why The Professor can't Teach". In 1999, Steve Krantz, in his book, "How to Teach Mathematics" reported that academics were paying much more attention to their teaching duties than before. Both of these books were largely about the situation in the USA. This paper explores ideas around the early in-service and continuing professional development of academics and uses examples from several countries.
