Due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are exercising an abundance of caution by postponing the Spring 2020 “Redesigning the Pathway to Calculus” workshop. We will work to reschedule the workshop for a later date.
Submit the form below to receive updates on our professional learning offerings.
Bring a team to this national redesigning the pathway to Calculus workshop where participants will dig into research on preparation for Calculus, engage with curricular design processes, and create a campus-wide pathway to Calculus redesign plan. The workshop will offer breakout sessions designed to customize your engagement depending on your stage in the redesign process.
Breakout sessions are customized for:
- Institutions in very early stages of redesign
- Institutions in more advanced states of redesign
Time will be dedicated to team planning, and opportunities to collaborate with and learn from other teams will be incorporated. The result is an actionable plan to take back to your campus.
This workshop is not tied to any specific curriculum, but rather helps to provide actionable guidance for building successful, sustainable approaches to curricular redesign.
