The Charles A. Dana Center will support Indiana Commission on Higher Education’s implementation of Quantitative Reasoning courses. This arc of support from Fall 2018 through Fall 2019 is designed to help participants:
- Develop a shared understanding of current implementation of quantitative reasoning course learning outcomes across institutions,
- Learn about best practices in curriculum and pedagogy in quantitative reasoning courses,
- Identify and use resources available to help turn learning outcomes into a student-centered curriculum, and
- Reflect on personal pedagogical practices and implement evidence-based practices into teaching.
Fall 2018 QR Workshop:
- Highlight work in the state and what the Dana Center is seeing in QR implementation across the United States

Virtual Support: Fall 2018 – Fall 2019:
- Three virtual information sessions on Quantitative Reasoning topics.
- Topics to be selected based on faculty input during the Fall 2018 workshop.
- FOCI: Collaborative Learning
- Cohorts of faculty participate in a series of 6 structured sessions, exploring and applying evidence-based practices for supporting effective adult learning in quantitative reasoning classrooms.
- Each session is 2 hours long and participants gather via videoconference (everyone participates from their own offices and we connect with audio, video, and materials made available online).
- Sessions are designed to introduce research and evidence as to the effectiveness of collaborative learning in deepening conceptual understanding.
