Title

FITW Lightning Rounds

Abstract

This meeting is for representatives from colleges that are partners on the U.S. Department of Education's FIPSE First in the World grant-funded project to develop a just-in-time, blended approach to mathematics fundamentals support in introductory STEM courses. Partner colleges are Allegheny, Bryn Mawr, Denison, Franklin & Marshall, Grinnell, Lafayette, Mills, Oberlin, Smith, St. Olaf, Vassar, and Wellesley. In this session, each partner college delegation is asked to give a 5-minute "lightning round" synopsis of their existing campus programs to support students with weak backgrounds and/or to help underrepresented minority, low-income and first-generation students succeed in STEM fields and college generally. The goal of this session is to develop a collective understanding of each other's expertise and experience in areas related to the grant, and understand a bit more how the grant project fits into the landscape of existing initiatives on our diverse campuses.
