NCAT Redesign Scholar Teresa Overton from Northern Virginia Community College will describe how their redesign of developmental math, impacting almost 10,000 students, got started and how they resolved problems that arose. NCAT vice president Carolyn Jarmon will give examples of what has been experienced by four-year institutions in a variety of academic disciplines as they began their redesigns. The agenda includes plenty of time for discussion to help you think about how to get started. Click here to register.
