WestEd and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) both recognize the importance digital learning has on transforming the learning experience. This presentation will look at the strategy NWTC is adopting to increase access to educational experiences and resource, remove barriers to learning, extend support opportunities for remote students, and reduce student costs through Open Educational Resources/Subscription textbooks. WestEd’s Carnegie Math Pathways will explore a real-world application of digital learning in mathematics, showcasing how real collaborative learning, adaptive learning, and data-driven socio-emotional interventions in a digital course can be a reality for entry-level mathematics students in the online space.

Date and Time:
2:30 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.

Can we help math students answer the age-old lament, “When am I ever going to use this?” One critical step to making math learning relevant and meaningful to students lives is through math pathways course designs that incorporate critical learning processes in the curricular design, active instructional methods, and integrated students supports. Implementation of the Carnegie Math Pathways isn’t a simple out of the box solution. Instead it is offering a comprehensive set of tools and resources to help instructors present meaningful learning content to students with the flexibility to adapt the implementation to specific cultural, regional, and community contexts. Join us for a session that will feature case studies from faculty at three tribal college campuses.The examples in this workshop will provide participants with useful ideas and strategies that they may in turn use and adapt to improve instruction in their own classroom. Ideas for implementing math pathways courses will also be addressed.

Date and Time:
2:30 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.
