About Ander Erickson

Ander Erickson is from Portland, OR. He received his Ph.D at the University of Michigan and most recently served as Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Western Oregon University. He previously taught mathematics at the University of Portland and Portland State University where he received his Masters in Mathematics.

Ander has two primary research areas. First, he studies the introduction of information-literacy instruction into mathematics classrooms. This includes analyzing the features of classroom tasks that help students engage productively with expert communities, the role of mathematics in these tasks, and how teachers facilitate the development of a critical stance towards quantitative claims. Second, he participates in the analysis of a large-scale online study of secondary mathematics teacher decision-making carried out through the online LessonSketch platform. This study employs virtual teaching scenarios to better understand the conditions under which teachers are willing to depart from normative instructional practices.
