As a scholar of teaching and learning, Dr. Kastberg explores and contributes to public understanding of mathematics teaching and learning and mathematics teacher education. Dr. Kastberg’s discovery, learning, and engagement activities are undertaken to develop and contribute to understandings of the beauty and complexity of teaching, learning, and learning to teach mathematics-learners.

Dr. Kastberg’s perspective on teaching and learning is informed by her interpretation of radical constructivist epistemology (Von Glasersfeld, 1995) and Steffe and D’Ambrosio’s (1995) view of constructivist teaching. The mathematics context for Dr. Kastberg’s inquiry is multiplicative reasoning (Harel & Confery, 1994). She has worked to build evidence of relational practice (Grossman, 2011; Kitchen, 2005) including exploring and illustrating listening, trust, care, and empathy, and the ways in which these sustain and motivate student-teacher collaborations.
