---------------------
Moderator (Hye Ok Park): Yes, Ida, I will send you a draft next week.

---------------------
Moderator (JimMonaghan_CSUSB): we propose to revamp our developmental mathematics programs using the following components:

a) Modularization of learning content utilizing open educational resources. These resources will be adopted from off-the-shelf best practice modules available via MERLOT and other OER’s as well as through targeted development by consortium faculty of modules that will be made freely available. This effort will leverage the digital marketplace/affordable learning solutions initiative of the CSU chancellor’s office.
b) Use of online tutoring using a combination of MyMathLab and ALEKS
c) Development and implementation of a robust online community of practice for support of students via mentoring with faculty and membership with cohort groups of students all taking developmental math
d) Implementation of a multi-campus hybrid online model in which students can interact with participating mathematics faculty via both online and face to face interactions at any of the participating institutions

---------------------
Moderator (JohnWhitmer-Chico_CO_LMSS) to JimMonaghan_CSUSB: It was developed for the CAHSEE, but the CAHSEE steps program integrated online tutors effectively (using Elluminate) - and may have some good data from a different context - including analytics. They had a partnership with UC Santa Barbara. Let me know if you'd like a contact with that program -

---------------------
Moderator (JimMonaghan_CSUSB): monaghan@csusb.edu would be key contact for Consortium systematic improvement of achievement and persistence in developmental mathematics in the California State University system

---------------------
Moderator (JimMonaghan_CSUSB) to JohnWhitmer-Chico_CO_LMSS: hi john, was your last message for me...i'm loooking at a small netbook screen

---------------------
Moderator (Ida CSU Fresno): I'd also like to present a proposal before our time is up...I like the math proposal and will take info for those working on curricular redesign in math/stats courses

---------------------
Moderator (JohnWhitmer-Chico_CO_LMSS) to JimMonaghan_CSUSB: Yep - here it is again - It was developed for the CAHSEE, but the CAHSEE steps program integrated online tutors effectively (using Elluminate) - and may have some good data from a different context - including analytics. They had a partnership with UC Santa Barbara. Let me know if you'd like a contact with that program -

---------------------
Moderator (Ida CSU Fresno): who is the contact for the math (northridge) proposal?

---------------------
Moderator (JohnWhitmer-Chico_CO_LMSS): I think you can only submit one proposal per PI -

---------------------
Moderator (JohnWhitmer-Chico_CO_LMSS): but beyond that, no limits.

---------------------
Moderator (Hye Ok Park): David, Pomona may be interested in contributing to the core business course creation.

---------------------
Moderator (David Levin CSUN) to JimMonaghan_CSUSB: contacts for math at Northridge are kate.stevenson@csun.edu and dlevin@csun.edu.

---------------------
Moderator (David Levin CSUN): contacts for math at Northridge are kate.stevenson@csun.edu and dlevin@csun.edu.

---------------------
Moderator (JohnWhitmer-Chico_CO_LMSS): Some feedback - from typing ...

---------------------
Moderator (Ida CSU Fresno): I wanted to add the proposal from Fresno-I'll add it here along with contact info for anyone who is interested:

---------------------
Moderator (Ida CSU Fresno): PROPOSAL NAME: Improving Student Writing
TRACK NAME: Deeper learning/analytics
EXEMPLARY PRACTICE California State University, Fresno Campus has been involved with an improving Student Writing Initiative using Criterion (an ETS product) although seeking to expand to other computer based writing products. Started in Spring 2010 with variety of faculty/students who've used it in a variety of ways. Each semester faculty are invited to meet and discuss the issues and talk about the ways they can use the program. Probably not very effective for graduate students. Used primary for undergraduate students. I don't know the faculty numbers, but I believe approximately 5000 students have been involved so far. Re-examining use as a basis for doing coursework and something else for diagnosis
DISTINGUISHING FEATURES: Computer Based Learning; cost effectiveness; multi-disciplinary, early assessment program/early start; worked on for 1 year so far
NEEDS TO IMPROVE STRENGTH:. working on data analysis but so far not really done; I cannot answer re much of that because I'm involved tangentially
WHO'S THE CONTACT FOR FOLLOW UP: Ida Jones, idaj@csufresno.edu; Ellen Junn (ejunn@ csufresno.edu), Jenn Ivie (jivie@csufresno.edu); Kim Morin (kimm@csufresno.edu);

---------------------
Moderator (David Levin CSUN): Brief description of the Business proposal:

---------------------
Moderator (David Levin CSUN): Hybrid/Open Courseware Model for Core Business Courses

To efficiently meet high student demand the CSUN College of Business turned to open courseware and redesigned a core course in management and organizational behavior from traditional to hybrid format. The course is a 3-unit upper division core that is taken by all business and management majors. Each semester the College offers six sections of the course in large lecture halls, enrolling a total of 900 students per semester. The purpose of the redesign was to increase effectiveness (improve student learning and completion) and efficiency (save resources, streamline course administration, reduce student commutes and increase flexibility). The hybrid model relies on three principal components: (1) open core content provided by Flat World Knowledge; (2) open course delivery through a learning management system such as Moodle; and (3) a three-pronged, “hamburger” model of topic coverage and delivery which deepens student learning through repetition and by combining face-to-face lecture and discussion with interactive online activities. The model will scale in two ways: (1) class size will increase and extend beyond the classroom through lecture capture and live-streaming; (2) to other departments such as economics, marketing and sociology as well as to partnering postsecondary institutions by (a) leveraging the technology and hybrid model; and (b) creating an open-source repository of customizable, stand-alone learning modu

---------------------
Moderator (David Levin CSUN): modules that can be re-mixed and incorporated into the open courseware for integrated delivery regardless of campus.

---------------------
Moderator (JimMonaghan_CSUSB): hi ida, did you mean developmental math or business math. I'm the contact for the former, david levin would be for the latter...

---------------------
Moderator (Ida CSU Fresno): actually praobably both--we're doing a curricular innovation initiative that includes both,

---------------------
Moderator (Ida CSU Fresno): Again using NCAT investigators for training

---------------------
Moderator (Kathy Fernandes - Chico): Thanks Gerry. Got to go...

---------------------
Moderator (JohnWhitmer-Chico_CO_LMSS): On Moodle Analytics / Early Warning - jwhitmer@csuchico.edu for follow-up

---------------------
Moderator (David Levin CSUN): CSUN contacts for our hybrid business project are deone.zell@csun.edu and dlevin@csun.edu.

---------------------
Moderator (Masupland): Graduate Nursing Leadership and Management New Curriculum converting to blended learning online hybrid with some emphasis on Deeper Learning and Analytics. Awash with partners but thin in numbers/data

---------------------
Moderator (Masupland): high demand occupation=nursing, vacuum of leadership in health care with a culture of blame shifting to a culture of safety in health care

---------------------
Moderator (Hye Ok Park): Gotta go! Thank you!

---------------------
Moderator (Kevin Kelly): plus: good to hear what others are doing to find synchronicities

---------------------
Moderator (Hye Ok Park): Ditto to Kevin's comment

---------------------
Moderator (David Levin CSUN): This process has been VERY helpful in developing proposals and identifying partners.

---------------------
Moderator (Kevin Kelly): delta: not much time left to combine similar efforts

---------------------
Moderator (JimMonaghan_CSUSB): thank you for setting this up, Gerry

---------------------
Moderator (David Levin CSUN): thank you!

---------------------
Moderator (Hye Ok Park): Kathy, perhaps you and I can talk more about ours.

---------------------
Moderator (Kevin Kelly): Hye Ok, I'll check with Maggie and we'll get a hold of you...perhaps a three-way call with Chico is in order since they are all fac dev related
