I was in Louisville today at Jefferson Community and Technical College to discuss developmental mathematics course redesign in KCTCS. I was not too surprised that each of the sixteen colleges are in different places in the process.
I was expecting some arm-twisting at this meeting, but there was none. There was some application of peer pressure.
My college is in the planning phase of redesigning our Basic Math, Elementary Algebra, and Intermediate Algebra classes. We will be piloting the program this summer, and implementing it in the fall for half of our classes.
I've got some thoughts about course redesign floating around in my head. I hope to get them down in the blog next week.
