In academic year 2017-18, the Division of Academic and Student Affairs will provide an array of opportunities to learn about proven approaches for increasing students’ academic engagement, promoting well-being, and sharing best practices.
Face-to-face summits, institutes, symposia, webcasts and digitally-supported professional learning communities will connect CSU faculty, academic & student affairs professionals, and national leaders in higher education.

This two-day workshop will be facilitated by the University of Texas at Austin Dana Center and will feature examples of co-requisite mathematics approaches. There will be breakouts for participants restructuring college algebra, statistics, quantitative reasoning, and pre-calculus/calculus courses. Participants will share resources, create learning outcomes, map activities for main courses and support components, and develop outlines and syllabuses. Campuses have been invited to send six individuals.

The December meeting of Mathematics faculty involved in Course Redesign with Technology will focus on EdReady, a personalized, college-math-readiness application designed to help students test their college readiness. It can provide a personalized learning path to fill knowledge gaps. EdReady is available to any aspiring CSU student free-of-charge, and there is no limit to the amount of time they can spend on it. Following a demo, CSU campus representatives will share ways they have used the application in Early Start courses and other programs.

This hands-on, two-day workshop for CSU and California Community College faculty explores the connection between academic literacy and equity. It will introduce the Reading Apprenticeship framework for developing students’ ability to read in the disciplines and incorporate strategies for uncovering threshold concepts and growing academic mindsets. The workshop is presented by the California Faculty Collaborative, an AAC&U grant-funded project, in conjunction with the California Community Colleges Success Network (3CSN).
Co-requisite support courses are a proven method for offering “just-in-time” instruction to improve student success. Join us to explore how “backward mapping,” a technique to identify knowledge and skills required for success in college-level courses, is used to design outcomes and activities in co-requisite support courses. In this webcast, Rob Birrell, who oversaw the implementation of co-requisite support for mathematics at Kennesaw State University, and Claudia Pinter-Lucke, professor emerita of Mathematics at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, will review the purpose of co-requisite mathematics courses, best practices for structuring these courses and the process of backward mapping.
Register by Friday, January 19, 2018. The webcast will be recorded for later viewing.
