Spring PD coming up at Fanshawe College

Have you had experience trying to “right size” the mathematics admission requirements for your college program? Are you looking to set or change your math admission requirements? There is always a balance and “tension” among student success, access to programs and mathematics skill sets unique to each program. Come hear the experiences of College faculty, program coordinators and administrators who have set mathematics admission requirements for their programs. Break out into working sessions to explore all the considerations of setting your math admission requirements. Come away with a plan for your program!

Julian Jarosh, professor at Fanshawe College, has organized a professional development event on “right sizing” mathematics admission requirements for Saturday, March 12. This will be held at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario, so you may wish to stay overnight Friday and then attend the sessions on Saturday. The event includes guest speakers and discussion forums. It is sponsored by the OCMA and Fanshawe College, so the cost is VERY reasonable.

Look for the brochure under new and noteworthy to find out how to register by February 24.
