Tuesday, October 9th, 20182:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

Presented by: John Holcomb (Cleveland State University)


At Cleveland State University, with funding from NSF, we have adopted a supplemental instruction model for all precalculus courses and select sections of calculus. In this approach, the supplemental instruction is mandatory and led by upperclassman that we call SPTs (STEM Peer Teachers). In this webinar I will discuss the model, the result of higher pass rates in these classes and how we have begun adapting this approach in statistics I & II classes.
