Alan Schoenfeld is Elizabeth and Edward Conner Professor of Education at the University of California–Berkeley Graduate School of Education.

His research deals with thinking, teaching, and learning, with an emphasis on mathematics. His book Mathematical Problem Solving characterizes what it means to “think mathematically” and describes a research-based undergraduate course in mathematical problem solving. He led the Balanced Assessment project, which developed alternative assessments for K–12 mathematics curricula, and has worked on modeling the process of teaching. He is a senior advisor to the Educational Human Resources Directorate of the National Science Foundation, and has served as senior content advisor to the What Works Clearinghouse.

Schoenfeld was a founding editor of Research in Collegiate Mathematics Education and served as associate editor of Cognition and Instruction. He was lead author for grades 9–12 of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. He is a principal investigator in the Diversity in Mathematics Education (DiME) Center on the Berkeley campus.

Schoenfeld currently serves as vice president of the National Academy of Education. He is also a past president of the American Educational Research Association, and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
