Abstract: 

This is a public lecture by Dr. `Brit' Kirwan, Chancellor Emeritus of the University System of Maryland and executive director of the Transforming Post-Secondary Education in Mathematics project. Dr. Kirwan will present evidence-based strategies and pedagogies, on both a university-wide and classroom-level, that provide hope for greater and more diverse student access and success, even in a time of diminishing public investment in higher education. He will also highlight key trends, including making smart use of new technologies, developing an active learning “emporium model” and defining alternative pathways for degree requirements in mathematics, among others.
