LEAP Texas was disappointed with the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel the in-person 7th Annual LEAP Texas Conference in response to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis. However, we are happy to announce the launch of the 7th Annual LEAP Texas Conference Webinar Series! This series will feature a number of the Concurrent Session presentations that were scheduled for the Conference. The first part of this series will run from April 21 through May 8, 2020, with additional presentations coming over the summer.
April 22, 2020 â€“ 1:00 pm (CST)
Supplemental Instruction in High DFW Math Courses
Webinar Track:Â Strategies and Pathways for Student Success
Liz Brown â€“ Abilene Christian University
Laura Carroll â€“ Abilene Christian University
Gateway math classes (such as MATH 1312 and 1314) and developmental math classes are often courses with high Drop-Fail-Withdraw rates, and studentsâ€™ failure to pass prevents them from being able to progress in their major courses. This session will discuss several approaches to fostering student success. We will highlight the use of the Supplemental Instruction (SI) model in both developmental and first-year math classes, share student success rates, and discuss both challenges and strategies for effective implementation.
