Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Mar 3, 2017
Suite, DeWitt Wallace Library

David Bressoud, Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, will present "Lessons from the National Study of Calculus Instruction."  Since 2009, I have been leading a series of NSF-sponsored national studies of the mainstream Calculus sequence that have included surveys and case study visits. This talk will provide an overview of what we have learned about how these courses are taught, their effect on students (especially women and underrepresented minorities), the practices of the most successful departments, and the degree to which departments are taking up these best practices.  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
