Research on university level mathematics education is a fast developing field as evident in the growth of the CERME University Mathematics Education (hereafter UME) Thematic Working Group. TWG14 was launched in CERME7 (Nardi, González-Martín, Gueudet, Iannone & Winsløw, 2011). After CERME8 (Nardi, Biza, González-Martín, Gueudet, & Winsløw, 2013), its leader team – in collaboration with TWG14 participants and others – worked towards a Research in Mathematics Education Special Issue on Institutional, sociocultural and discursive approaches to research in university mathematics education (Nardi, Biza, González-Martín, Gueudet & Winsløw, 2014) which focused on research that is conducted in the spirit of the following theoretical frameworks: Anthropological Theory of the Didactic, Theory of Didactic Situations, Instrumental and Documentational Approaches, Communities of Practice and Inquiry and Theory of Commognition.
