Joyce Nyama

Welcome to my ePortfolio

My name is Joyce Nyama and I have just submitted my PhD thesis studied through the Centre for Education Studies in the Mathematics Education department. My supervisors are Sue Johnston-Wilder (University of Warwick) and Dr. Nicholas Lee (University of Warwick).

My research interests are in experiences, emotions and subjective views that impact on stances taken by learners in their mathematics education journey in general but looking at 'mathematical resilience' in particular. I am exploring the subjective views of students on the construct of mathematical resilience using the Q Methodology. Mathematical resilience is a term coined by my supervisor Sue Johnston-Wilder (and Clare Lee) that is used to describe a learner's action/reaction and navigation of their mathematical learning journey. This construct has recently experienced a surge in interest and this research aims to add to the growing literature on it. However, Q Methodology (even though it was developed in the 1930s) has not been as widely used and certainly not been used in this area of mathematical resilience.

This research will take me on a journey of exploration and discovery.
