Math 103 Lab: It Works
What makes it work so well?What are the lessons learned?
In this podcast, Community Steward, Suzanne Aurilio chats with Kate Stevenson about her Math Lab at CSU Northridge.
Featured Campus Project: CSU San Bernardino
The focus of our project is the transformation of our first-year
experience project, the Gateway Program. We plan to
restructure the program so that the third Gateway-enhanced course that
students take will be a large class (such as PSYCH 100, HSCI 120, or
HIST 142) transformed—through technology and other pedagogical
strategies—from a lecture-based format into inquiry-based courses that
promote active learning and greater teacher-student interaction and are
consistent with the Gateway Program philosophy.
Utilizing the three Gateway-enhanced large classes in Spring 2008 as
part of the Spring 2008 offering will enable us to achieve our learning outcomes at a much
lower cost than the previous approach, which would have us offering sixteen Gateway-enhanced courses in the Spring
2008 capped at 20 students.
