How to Support and Lead the Urgent Transition to Quality Online Learning in Intro Math - a TPSE report with Ithaka S+R

Math departments are moving introductory math courses online at scale, presenting both opportunities and challenges. This report aims to be a resource for department chairs, academic administrators, and senior leaders involved in course delivery decisions. It includes resource suggestions for online teaching and learning, but is not a “how to teach online” guide.

TPSE Math partnered with Ithaka S+R on a project to develop, test, and scale new models for entry-level math instruction. The resulting report was published in November 2019, and an article about the results appeared in Campus Technology.
