Abstract: Enhancing the Pedagogy of Mathematics Teachers (EPMT) project is a hybrid model of Professional Development (PD) that reflects a gradual shift in the centre of gravity away from the University-based, "supply-side", "off-line" forms of knowledge production conducted by university scholars for teachers towards an emergent school-based, demand-side, on-line, in situ forms of knowledge production conducted by teachers with support from university scholars. The aims of the EPMT project were three fold: to provide teachers with training, to facilitate teachers' work (practice and feedback) at the school level and to enthuse and support teachers to contribute towards the development of fellow teachers. This paper presents one aspect of the project namely, teachers' work at the school level that advanced reasoning and communication in mathematics lessons.
