Event Information:

Like many departments with a large service teaching commitment, the Math Department has been operating for some time at the end of its logistical supply lines. In this talk I'll describe a mitigating initiative that grew out of an experimental small course structure at Vantage College, matured in a large first-year mainstream course, and will be used starting next year for all first-year calculus courses. We'll also discuss some other ways to address the challenge of doing good teaching at scale.
