The Power of CourseKata: Statistics and Data Science in the CCC
Do you teach introductory statistics? Are you the chair of a math department at a community college? Join this one-hour workshop to hear how community colleges can respond to the increased student enrollment in introductory statistics courses!
Eddie Tchertchian (Pierce College), Ben Smith (Pierce College), and Ji Son (Cal State LA) will be showcasing the free CourseKata online interactive textbook and in-class lessons that seamlessly integrate learning statistical concepts with learning to code with R in Jupyter notebooks (no experience with R or Jupyter needed).
Adaptive Learning Technology Mini-Convening (Learning Lab Grantees Only)
This virtual meeting will feature the “Adapt + LibreTexts” project, hosted by UC Davis with partners Mendocino College, CSU San Bernardino, CSU Chancellor’s Office, and the CCC Academic Senate. Principal Investigator Delmar Larson will introduce the project which has a goal to improve student performance in gateway chemistry courses. He will explain the project’s adaptive learning approach, which applies a “scaffold introduction” for faculty as a starting place upon which more sophisticated or complex utility can be learned and accessed. *This event is open to Learning Lab grantees only.
Learning Lab Grantee Fall Convening
The Art & Science of Transformation
Daniel Reinholz, Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and faculty member in the Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education at San Diego State University, provided a workshop on how organizational learning theories can be applied to STEM higher education to support more sustainable change initiatives.
Nancy Pryor and Rob Shorette, Learning Lab staff, explored team dynamics as a part of the "people" frame of the four frames theory for systemic change, and drew from the experiences of the grantee community to share insights on becoming a more effective collaborator.
The Syllabus as an Equity Practice
A Conversation with Estela Bensimon
A syllabus is much more than a contract. It is an artifact through which classroom culture can be deciphered, and which can help students feel welcome, represented, and valued. A syllabus reflects how a faculty member views students as learners and the efforts that the faculty member will make to support their success. In this session, you will learn six features of equity-minded syllabi: Welcoming, Creating a Partnership, Representing, Deconstructing, Demystifying, and Validating.
