Keynote address by Dr. RaKissa Manzanares, Assistant Professor of Mathematics at University of Colorado, Denver. Dr Manzanares spoke on Best Practices for Creating an Active and Engaging Online Learning Environment.
Keynote Abstract: How do we create an online learning environment that is more or as active and dynamic as our traditional brick and mortar classrooms? How can we supplement our current traditional classroom environments to encourage more engagement with the material outside of the classroom? How do we engage students in a dialogue about mathematics with their instructor and classmates utilizing an online learning platform? This keynote address examined these questions as well as provided a variety of best practices to support mathematics instructors in developing learning environments (online, hybrid, and traditional) that keep students engaged and active with the content.
David Webb, Associate Professor and Program Co-Chair of Mathematics at CU Boulder, spoke in March 2016 introducing the idea of Tactivities in Math. These tools help students to deepen their conceptual understanding calculus through tactile activities. At this conference, many were interested in this project. Tactivities is funded by an NSF grant and is still in progress through the University of Colorado and Oklahoma University.
Luke Walsh from Catawba Valley Community College spoke in March 2015. His keynote talk was "Back to the Future: How The Math Of The Past Looked Better Than Today"
Pat McKeague, owner of XYZ Textbooks and MathTV.com, spoke in March 2014.
