  4. 4. Coastline’s Math Department is 85% Purely Online With High Rates of Success and Retention
  5. 5. Coastline’s Math Department is 85% Purely Online With High Rates of Success and Retention
  6. 6. Currently Offering Spring 2019: • One Section of College Algebra With Support (Online, 6 Units) • One Section of Introduction To Statistics With Support (Online, 6 Units)
  7. 7. College Algebra Textbook with Corequisite Solution, Course Management System, Integrated Review, Personalized Homework Introduction to Statistics Online Educational Resource (OER) Zero-Cost Textbook Course Material
  8. 8. Using Default Placement Rules From CCCCO Memo July 11, 2018 …and Guided Self Placement (GSP)
  9. 9. Pedagogy for Online Support Courses: • Cohort model • 2-unit classes • Small classes (25 or less) • Separate CRN’s and grades • FT faculty create course templates • Professional development & communities of practice • Required for faculty who teach support classes • Pay faculty who participate in PD • Include non-cognitive and affective domain in the training and in classes • Involve college alert and support systems
  10. 10. What Makes an Online Course Good for Students? • Better access to classes which fit their schedule of school and/or work • Students self-select into the mode of delivery • Online format fosters more independent learning • Instructor able to give more attention to some students who might otherwise be ignored • Students schedule study time at their convenience, with less distractions and more concentration • Students can interact with anyone, any time, rather than just who they sit next to in class.
  11. 11. What Makes an Online Course Good for Faculty? • Increased flexibility • Teach from any location, any time • Online format fosters more independent learning • Anonymity of the Internet: Everyone is equal
  12. 12. “On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog!”
  13. 13. What Makes an Online Course Good for Faculty? (Cont’d) • Increased flexibility • Teach from any location, any time • Online format fosters more independent learning • Anonymity of the Internet: Everyone is equal • Feeling of community is possible! • Equally rewarding and enjoyable • Number of students you can reach individually increases • Students can collaborate easier • Students do more on their own—the role of authority is more spread out
  14. 14. What Makes an Online Course Good for Faculty? (Cont’d) • Assessments (homework & quizzes) are interactive and scored automatically, saving time • Changes to course can be made in real time • You have time to think and research before answering questions • Students expect more technology from higher education • Amount of voicemails decrease • Interaction can and should replicate in-class discussion • Supplemental and enrichment material can be more timely
  15. 15. A Few Tips • Use a Tablet PC
  16. 16. Use Jing to capture embed HTML code, then paste image into the body of a message on the Discussion Board:
  17. 17. A Few Tips (Cont’d) • Use a Tablet PC • Discourage the use of email: encourage use of Discussion Board “That’s a great question! Could you do me a favor? Other students may be wondering the same thing. Could you please post it on the Discussion Board? That way, we can help everyone. I or another student will reply right away. Thanks. I appreciate it!” • Your first priority is discussion (before email) • Teach students to communicate mathematically • Demonstrate the behavior you want students to emulate • Lure students to Discussion Board • Welcome videos and emails • Frequent low-stakes interaction, practice and feedback • Proactive, specific feedback: struggling students, high achievers, etc.
  18. 18. A Few Tips (Cont’d) • Be flexible; allow students to work ahead or catch up if they fall behind • Drop No Shows and Inactive students but allow them to catch up and be reinstated in the class • Maintain academic quality and rigor (same as onsite classes) • Exams MUST be Proctored, show ID, show your work, and worth a significant percentage (2/3 or more) of their final course grade • Create and randomly distribute multiple forms of the exams • Consider individuals who may need to finish late (give them an F then change their grade later) • Give assignments that are peer evaluated • Ask students to explain their thinking, justify their answers; ask frequent open-ended questions that may not have one, right answer* *More on this later…
  19. 19. A Few Tips (Cont’d) • Supplement and enrich the course with instructor-created material • Personalize the course with your voice, with videos, with your hobby, background, interests, sense of humor, etc.
  20. 20. What Makes a Good Online Support Course? • All the above PLUS • Concurrent enrollment of cohorts in transfer courses • Low-unit concurrent support (one- to two-units) • Backwards design and just-in-time remediation • Integrate intentional strategies, policies and activities to address the affective side of learning • Help accelerate acquisition of college-level skills • Integrate academic affairs and student services (e.g. counseling, mentoring, and guidance to students’ goals)
  21. 21. Sources for Affective Domain
  22. 22. Pearson Textbooks

  27. 27. Include Non-Routine Questions In Your Class “Avoid the bulimic* method of education…” *Overeating, followed by vomiting -- Dr. Stuart Firestein, 2013, https://www.ted.com/talks/ stuart_firestein_the_pursuit_of_ignorance#t-876778
  28. 28. Open Middle Using the digits 1 to 9, at most one time each, fill in the boxes to create a fraction that’s as close to one as possible. It doesn’t matter if your fraction is a little bit more or a little bit less than 1. Just get as close to 1 as you can.
  29. 29. Super Bowl Sunday This year’s game is Super Bowl LIII, Rams vs. Patriots. What’s special about the number 53? It’s Herbie the Love Bug’s racing number, and it’s the maximum number of players on an NFL roster. Explain this fact in your own words: 53 is the only two-digit number that is reversed in hexadecimal!
  30. 30. THE MATH AFFIRMATIONS 1. I am capable of learning and doing math. 2. Knowing math will positively affect my destiny. 3. Math is everywhere in the world. 4. Hard work is often mistaken for luck or natural ability. 5. If I play the victim, I will give up my power to change the world. 6. I may not know how to do something today, but I WILL tomorrow. 7. I will be patient with myself and others when learning math. 8. Success comes from not being afraid to ask questions. 9. Asking for help isn’t embarrassing, not asking for help is. 10. I have a right to be selfish about my needs as a student. Geillan Aly, PhD. University of Hartford, Hillyer College

  43. 43. AB 705 AB 705 requires community college districts to maximize the probability that a student will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in math and English within a one-year timeframe by utilizing assessment measures that include high school performance to achieve this goal.
  44. 44. AB 705 The goal of AB 705 is to ensure that students are not placed into remedial courses that may delay or deter their educational progress unless evidence suggests they are highly unlikely to succeed in the college-level course.
  45. 45. AB 705 Community colleges are prohibited from requiring students to take a prerequisite course unless they are highly unlikely to succeed in a higher-level course without it, pursuant to Section 55003 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations, …...

  54. 54. Affective Domain The affective domain describes learning objectives that emphasize a feeling tone, an emotion, or a degree of acceptance or rejection. Affective objectives vary from simple attention to selected phenomena to complex but internally consistent qualities of character and conscience. We found a large number of such objectives in the literature expressed as interests, attitudes, appreciations, values, and emotional sets or biases. [from Krathwohl et al, 1964 ]
  55. 55. Affective Domain  Significantly enhance, inhibit or even prevent student learning.  The affective domain includes factors such as student motivation, attitudes, perceptions and values.  Teachers can increase their effectiveness by considering the affective domain in planning courses  Delivering lectures and activities, and assessing student learning.
