In addition to the always bright shining Bioluminescence series of workshops the math department also has a series of workshops open to all faculty. Watch for Spotlight on Math on the CTEI calendar. While some of the topics may be specific to math others will have more general interest.
For example this Thursday and next Wednesday (Room G-217, 3:30-4:30) the department will describe its corequisite courses. So, if you are interested in corequisites to see how the students in your program are being prepared you can attend. Or if you are thinking about accelerated models in your area you could attend. Or if you wanted to compare other models like English’s Accelerated Learning Program you could attend.
The math data on corequisite courses is encouraging as you can see at http://bit.ly/spotlightonmathcoreq.
Later in the semester the depart will have a session titled Assessment: You Gotta and Your Oughta Wanna that will focus on math assessment but may be of general interest for other areas looking to revise or initiate course and ILO assessment.
One drawback to the Spotlight on Math series as compared to the Bioluminescence series is the store-bought instead of home baked snacks served at the sessions.
