As the situation with coronavirus continues to unfold, we know that several institutions have transitioned their face-to-face Quantway and Statway courses to distance learning. We recognize this is a challenging time, and offer the following resources to support you and your colleagues in making this transition smoother. We will keep this page updated and welcome your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Distance Learning Resources
We know that many of you are working quickly to transition your face-to-face Statway/Quantway courses to distance learning courses. We're sharing the following resources and activities to assist you.
On the week of March 16, we hosted webinars designed to assist faculty who are transitioning their current face-to-face Statway/Quantway courses to distance learning this term. You can see a recording of our first webinar here, as well as the presentation slides.
We hope these webinars will provide timely needed support in making the transition as smooth as possible.
In these webinars we shared:
- Suggested instructional models that promote the Quantway/Statway pedagogy – including group learning – in a distance learning environment, and corresponding free technology that can be used to support these models;
- A series of supports specifically for distance learning faculty to address issues of teaching and learning, including a new moderated discussion forum, webinar events for faculty to share learnings and best practices, and support from experienced Quantway/Statway online instructors; and
- Information about Quantway/Statway Virtual courses that are available this summer and beyond.
Experienced Online Statway/Quantway Faculty Mentors are here to support you should you have questions, concerns, or suggestions.
We’ve launched an online Discourse forum specifically for the sharing of resources and ideas. This is a super easy-to-use forum for posting questions and sharing supports. It is moderated by our Online Statway/Quantway Faculty Mentors. This short video shows you how to use it. By now you should have received an email inviting you to the Carnegie Math Pathways Community. Please join! If you haven’t received an email or would like us to resend it, please email Dan Ray at email@example.com.
We are hosting weekly Faculty Zoom Sharing Sessions starting Thursday, March 19. This is an opportunity for you to connect with other faculty who are making the transition and to share ideas and ask questions. (Need an introduction or refresher on how to use Zoom? Watch this short video introduction by our Instructional Support Specialist, Lewis Hosie, on using Zoom.)

Carnegie Math Pathways’s Virtual Courses have been specifically designed to bring the CMP’s design principles of active, collaborative learning and Productive Persistence, to life in the online course. Early results are extremely promising. The average success rate in our pilot Quantway Core courses was 80%, higher than our national average in face-to-face classes.
- Quantway Core,
- Quantway College,
- Quantway College + Corequisite,
- Statway College, and
- Statway College + Corequisite are available.
Plus, a limited number of licenses are available this summer at no cost to you or your students. Faculty must agree to share outcomes, surveys, and student feedback. LTI integration must be in place prior to the start of the summer term. Participating faculty must also attend a live webinar or complete a self-paced tutorial in order to implement the pilot.
For more information or to participate, please contact our Partnership Director, Mark Brodsky at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Carnegie Math Pathways Events
Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), many of our upcoming events and presentations at national conferences have been canceled or postponed. We will continue to offer virtual opportunities to connect with us and will keep our events updated as the situation evolves.
