I wish to invite you to participate in an online weekly seminar series for higher education faculty, graduate students, and interested others, which will begin on Thursday…
Title: Quantitative Literacy & Inquiry (QUALITI)
Participants will read and discuss research articles and book chapters on student inquiry, numeracy, and related assessment issues.
Assessment is our primary theme for this semester.
The weekly readings are listed below (and attached). Occasionally, authors of the readings will join in these weekly discussions.
