Changes to placement policies and reforms to course sequences and curriculum have reshaped the landscape of mathematics in community colleges. A new study suggests that within this new and improved landscape, researchers, leaders, and advocates must turn their attention to teaching quality and its role in improving outcomes in mathematics.
This blog post looks back at the first six years of CAPR's research and describes what's next for the center, including a suite of new projects and research questions focused on which developmental education reforms, policies, and practices work for whom.
In this CAPR podcast, CCRC's Nikki Edgecombe, Susan Bickerstaff, and Elizabeth Ganga discuss how colleges could alter their academic and nonacademic supports to more effectively help all students.
Investing in Teaching to Improve Student Success: Adapting Lesson Study to the Community College Context
Susan Bickerstaff describes the Lesson Study model of professional development for instructors and a new research study examining how this model can be used in developmental mathematics.
