Announcing the passing of Prof Alan J Bishop
Prof Alan J Bishop’s passing was first announced by Prof Wee Tiong Seah (Australia) to the international maths education research community at the Opening Ceremony of PME Regional Conference 2023 on 2 Dec 2023. That this event took place at Khon Kaen, Thailand was especially significant, because Alan had dedicated himself to improving mathematics education in the region in the last 15 years or so of his active academic life.
Another tribute was made by Prof Maitree Inprasitha (Thailand), who then led the plenary hall to observe a minute of silence in honour of Alan’s lifetime commitment and achievement. A video tribute was then played, documenting Alan’s activities at Khon Kaen University over time.
