Undergraduate

Student Engagement in Mathematics through an Institutional Network for Active Learning (SEMINAL) is a collaborative effort led by APLU and faculty at University of Colorado at Boulder, San Diego State University, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to better understand how math departments can successfully implement and sustain active learning in undergraduate mathematics classes. Although mathematics departments are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of active learning, many struggle to establish active learning as the instructional norm. In the first phase of SEMINAL, we investigated how mathematics departments at six institutions made sustained progress in shifting these departmental norms, particularly in the instruction of Precalculus, Calculus 1, and Calculus 2 (P2C2). Now in its second phase, nine different institutions have joined SEMINAL’s efforts, creating a network of institutions and partners whose common purpose is supporting the infusion of active learning in undergraduate mathematics courses. These nine institutions are just beginning their efforts to incorporate active learning into the P2C2 sequence, providing an opportunity for us to examine their change process as it occurs. We are particularly interested in how these institutions might contribute to and benefit from SEMINAL’s network in order to support and accelerate their change efforts.

In this video we give a short introduction to SEMINAL, and share key strategies and findings from the departments in the first phase of the project. We also highlight our plans for the second phase of the study. Please visit http://www.aplu.org/projects-and-initiatives/stem-education/seminal/index.html to learn more.
