TxCRLA/TADE present: A Conversation About the Developmental Education Joint Statement (Video)

Rating: 2.0/5 (1 vote cast)

Texas practitioners are on the front lines of educating college students and helping those who are underprepared realize their aspirations in higher education and in life. This webinar is intended to foster a discussion among faculty about new strategies for improving student outcomes in development education. At the center of this discussion: Should Texas practitioners support the Core Principles?

Dr. Uri Treisman, professor of mathematics and director of the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin, is one of the key contributors to the new Core Principles for Transforming Remediation within a Comprehensive Student Success Strategy, along with five other national organizations. Uri will provide background information about the document and its development, including the evidence upon which recommendations are based. He will also address connections between work going on in Texas to accelerate and align developmental math with students’ programs of study, such as the New Mathways Project and the Core Principles.

Dr. Rebecca Goosen is the Associate Vice Chancellor for College Preparatory at San Jacinto College. A champion for Developmental Education, Rebecca has led the transformation of courses at her institution and supported “changes that work” in Texas and across the nation. She is Past President of NADE, the National Association for Developmental Education, currently serves on the NADE Advisory Board, and she was recently honored as a Fellow of the Council of Learning Assistance and Developmental Education Associations (CLADEA). Rebecca has frequently challenged the precepts promoted by national foundations, and is keenly aware of the opportunities and pitfalls of transformation.
