Summer 2017: 1 Down, Three IBL Workshops to GO

The DePaul Team just completed workshop #1 of 3.  This summer the strategy is to spread IBL workshops across the nation, with the first one at DePaul University, Chicago, the second at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, CA, and the third in Upstate NY at Nazareth College.

Team DePaul included
Kyle Petersen, DePaul University
Danielle Champney, Cal Poly
Gulden Karakok, University of Northern Colorado
Brian Katz, Augustana College
Madison Parker, AIBL
Chuck Hayward, Evaluation Team, CU Boulder

The main theme of these workshops is "Big Tent" IBL.  Just as active learning is student centered, IBL Workshops are faculty centered.  That is, we focus on a broad IBL framework, and assist participants in finding a comfortable starting place that works for them, their students, and their institutional environments.  There isn't a single "correct" way of doing IBL. It's a system or framework based on (a) opportunities for students to regularly experience deep engagement in rich mathematics, and (b) opportunities for regular collaboration with classmates and the instructor.
