Strengthening Quantitative Reasoning: From Campus Conversations to Effective Curricular Reforms"
This ACM-sponsored workshop is planned for Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1. Professor Joel Best, a sociologist from the University of Delaware, who is best known for his books "Damned Lies and Statistics" and "More Damned Lies and Statistics" will speak on Friday evening. Our other speaker will be Bill Segraves, Associate Dean of Yale College at Yale University. Carleton is just finishing its first year of a FIPSE, Department of Education grant to support our new quantitative reasoning program, and we will have several people participating in the conference. The purpose of the conference is to get faculty and administrators who are curricular leaders on our campuses together to talk about how to develop and sustain curricular reforms linked to quantitative reasoning.
