Book Review: Networking theories as an example of boundary crossing. Angelika Bikner-Ahsbahs and Susanne Prediger (Eds.) (2014) Networking of theories as a research practice in mathematics education
This review essay first discusses a book authored by the Networking Theories Group and argues that the strategies for networking of theories are very similar to the learning mechanisms identified in the literature on boundary crossing. I propose that these two theoretical perspectives may be put into a fruitful dialogue.
I thank Sanne Akkerman, Ruben Noorloos, Sam Taylor, Dor Abrahamson, and Gail FitzSimons for their helpful comments on earlier drafts of this review essay.
