Abstract: 

Dr. Kirwan will meet with math, statistics and education faculty to talk about specific challenges, opportunities and responsibilities that these departments have regarding student success.
Asking, how can math education evolve to meet the urgent needs of a 21st century education?, Kirwan, executive director of the national reform effort “Transforming Post-Secondary Education in Mathematics” will present evidence-based pedagogies that offer hope for greater student access and success, even in a time of diminishing public investment in higher education.
