The Evolution of a Developmental Math Redesign: Moving from a Lecture-Based Course to a Computer-Based Model
Professor Synde Kraus
University of Wisconsin Green Bay – Sheboygan Campus
University of Wisconsin Green Bay – Sheboygan Campus currently utilizes on-campus, computer-based learning in a modified emporium setting. It is the product of a redesign that was started seven years ago and that is constantly being updated and improved in response to both student and instructor feedback.
Instructor Synde Kraus discusses the format and structure of the original redesign model, as well as how that model evolved into the course currently offered. She also shares what worked, what didn’t, and how many small changes and modifications have translated into improved student success.
