MAA Professional Development Courses over the WWW

Back to College Teachers

The MAA is planning four professional development courses to assist collegiate mathematics faculty to stay abreast of development and advances in mathematics and in mathematics education.
  • "Using Cooperative Learning" will be run by Ed Dubinsky (Purdue "Using Cooperative Learning" will be run by Ed Dubinsky (Purdue University), David Mathews (Central Michigan University), and Sr. Barbara Reynolds (Cardinal Stritch College, visiting Brown University). They have all been instructors in the Cooperative Learning in Undergraduate Education (CLUME) summer workshops on this subject. The first course is scheduled for spring '97, with subsequent courses during the summer.

  • "Learning About Learning and Teaching" is intended for graduate students, and will be run by Nancy Hagelgans of Ursinus College.

  • "Teaching Developmental Mathematics" will be headed by Bonnie Gold, Wabash College.

  • "Integrating Applications into Undergraduate Instruction", will be run by a task force headed by Martha Segal, Towson State University.

Special support for these activities will be provided by Jon Scott (Montgomery College), a visiting mathematician at the MAA headquarters. Ideas for other professional development activities should be conveyed to Jerry Porter,
