Presentation Transcript

  1. CBMS Forum on The First Two Years of College Math: Building Student Success Reflections: Where do we go from here?

  2. Mental Map Society College Department

  3. Mental Map Society College Department Here be Dragons

  4. Communication Society College Business as usual Department

  5. Communication Society Unusual: Direct and pointed messages to Mathematics Community (eg, PCAST) College Department

  6. Communication Society Challenge/Opportunity: more effective internal communication Dean Chair

  7. Key to Effective Communication • Know your audience

  8. Key to Effective Communication • Know your audience • Don’t ask for the Dean’s help to solve your problem…

  9. Key to Effective Communication • Know your audience • Don’t ask for the Dean’s help to solve your problem… • …rather, show the Dean how you can help solve his problem!

  10. Sympathy for the Devil

  11. Sympathy for the Devil Dean

  12. Sympathy for the Devil Dean • A Man of Wealth and Taste

  13. Sympathy for the Devil Dean • A Man of Wealth and Taste • Wealth = Exercise of Budget Authority • Taste = Responsibility to Advance Institutional Mission

  14. Institutional Mission (Big State U. Version) • Students • Scholarship • Engagement • Stewardship

  17. Punchline • Deans will be highly receptive to any plan that significantly improves • Single course success rates • Persistence of students through mathematics courses • Timely completion of degree programs

  18. Punchline • Deans will be highly receptive to any plan that significantly improves • Single course success rates • Persistence of students through mathematics courses • Timely completion of degree programs • Differential investment is based on trust and credibility

  19. Punchline • Deans will be highly receptive to any plan that significantly improves • Single course success rates • Persistence of students through mathematics courses • Timely completion of degree programs • Differential investment is based on trust and credibility • Trust is retrospective: based on past performance

  20. Punchline • Deans will be highly receptive to any plan that significantly improves • Single course success rates • Persistence of students through mathematics courses • Timely completion of degree programs • Differential investment is based on trust and credibility • Trust is retrospective: based on past performance • Credibility is prospective: depends on benchmarking against peer institutions, grounding the plan in unimpeachable sources, addresses local/state/national needs

  21. Scaling Up: from local to global • Apparent paradox: lots of local innovation yet no systemic change

  22. Scaling Up: from local to global • Apparent paradox: lots of local innovation yet no systemic change • Strong forces make the status quo stable

  23. Scaling Up: from local to global • Apparent paradox: lots of local innovation yet no systemic change • Strong forces make the status quo stable • Comparably strong forces must be brought to bear to effect change

  24. Scaling Up: from local to global • Apparent paradox: lots of local innovation yet no systemic change • Strong forces make the status quo stable • Comparably strong forces must be brought to bear to effect change • Beyond the reach of any chair/academic leader to change working in isolation

  25. Scaling Up: from local to global • Apparent paradox: lots of local innovation yet no systemic change • Strong forces make the status quo stable • Comparably strong forces must be brought to bear to effect change • Beyond the reach of any chair/academic leader to change working in isolation • What to do?
